The organization has been maximizing its agenda set by UN through a talk of various youth speakers who have experienced and utilized leadership in fulfilling each goal to fellow youth with inspiring and persuasive sharing sessions. The 2030 Project seeks to invite notable speakers who have been pioneers in their respective fields.
Last year, the theme was, “LEGGO PH: Partnering for change, building a sustainable future.” The LEGGO theme represented the strategic mobilization of Filipino youth. Each event featured 17 SDG Youth Champions and had keynote speakers and program designs that were fitted to the island’s culture.
Furthermore, this will be a prestigious gathering of brilliant speakers who will share their insights and will speak their mind as a pioneer for better change. Thus, the event will light the fire in the hearts of the youth to be a pedestal of change.
