Making Cents International Launches the YE0 2030 Initiative

eTradeWire News/10655965
WASHINGTON - eTradeWire -- Making Cents International recently announced the launch of the YEO 2030 Initiative, a global initiative that unites young leaders and adults to address barriers to achieving the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goal 8 (SDG 8) that promotes sustainable economic growth and employment for all.

Named for its focus on youth economic opportunity (YEO) and its goal to accelerate achieving SDG 8 by the year 2030, the initiative was born out of Making Cents' flagship Global Youth Economic Opportunities (GYEO) Summit and builds upon its commitment to scale YEO programming, opportunities, and multi-stakeholder partnerships.

"YEO 2030 marks a new phase in our efforts to improve economic opportunities for youth," said Making Cents President Tim Nourse. "The initiative will leverage our over a decade of experience in convening stakeholders, deepen engagement with youth leaders, and expand our efforts globally to advance achievement of SDG 8."

YEO 2030's global community of 20 partners to date is using a hybrid set of virtual and in-person activities to inform the initiative's strategic direction. This fall, YEO 2030 is hosting Youth Dialogues to garner youth perspectives and Solution Webinars to identify youth economic challenges and potential solutions. In 2022, there will be a Regional YEO Convening for key stakeholders before culminating the first year of the initiative with a Global YEO Summit in the spring.

In the long term, the initiative plans to organize convenings in as many as 50 countries and engage upwards of 100,000 youth in pursuit of achieving SDG 8.
