Low value minerals and materials from a development perspective are high value for local economies. 40% of people involved in these minings are women.
The #SDGstudio was an exciting feature of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals stand at the European Development Days (EDDs) in Brussels on 7-8 June, 2017 #EDD17. It is a unique platform to generate informal and insightful inter-generational dialogues between young leaders and high-level officials from the United Nations, the European Commission and a wide range of other institutions present at the EDDs.
EDD Young Leaders and other youth activists engaged directly with decision-makers and became part of a multi-generational discussion about what it takes to make the SDGs a reality and the collective effort required to bring the Goals home.
