About “Youth Delegate for Sustainable Development”

The first time, youth was classified as an own group that is affected by issues of sustainable development was at the Rio conference in 1992.
Since the earth summit in Joannesburg in 2002 (“Rio+10”) the German Federal Youth Organisation and the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety send out youth delegates, in order to participate in the political process of sustainable development within the UN.

Felix and Rebecca accompany the German governmental delegation to the United Nations in New York and meet young people in Germany to talk about sustainable development with them.

Lobby work in the German Ministry of Education and Research @BMBF_Bund to promote a wider application of Education of Sustainable Development, #BNE.
In my view, it will give people competencies to work on implementing SDGs and help raise acceptance for sustainability policies.

Im Gespräch mit dem @bund_net Magazin über meine Motivation, meine Arbeit bei den Vereinten Nationen und mit den UN Nachhaltigkeitszielen ##SDGs, meine Einschätzung zu unserer Generation und der Rolle Deutschlands in puncto Nachhaltigkeit. Voila.

From my guest lecture on the role of social work and #SustainableDevelopment:
Social work as multiplier and role models is an essential part for filling the #2030Agenda with life. It just hasn't reached university yet...
Let's get this job done!
