Featured Content: SYS Inaugural Conference

We are participating in the Saudi Youth for Sustainability Inaugural Conference (SYS), held during 19-10 June 2022. Join us for the panel discussion on ‘Re-imagining the Role of Education on Sustainability’.

As the rate of environmental damages increases across the globe, youth will face the worst effects. However, instead of being passive victims, young people are taking action to fight for a greener future at an unprecedented level. Meanwhile, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is experiencing a historic transformation towards a prosperous future. Saudi youth have a tremendous opportunity to mobilize their efforts and skills to move the needle on the most ambitious economic, social, and environmental transformation. The theme of this year’s annual conference is Thriving Together, in which we explore how Saudi youth can be active contributors to vision 2030 through advocacy, education, and technology.
