EEG, as an accredited NGO of the United Nations Environment Program and the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification, and as members of the United Nations Global Compact, organized this important event to address and work directly on the deliverables of several UN SDG goals, such as: #2: Zero Hunger, #3: Good Health and Wellbeing, #6: Clean Water and Sanitation, #7: Affordable and Clean Energy , #9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure, #11: Sustainable cities and communities, #12: Responsible consumption and production, #13: Climate action, #14: Life below water, #15: Life on land and #17: Partnership for the Goals.
EEG Co-Founder and Chair Habiba Al Mar’ashi said, “Global climate change is one of the most serious threats facing humanity today. Since this problem is closely linked to global patterns of production and consumption, in addition to technical and political progress, it is vital to involve society in efforts to achieve an ecologically sustainable society. Because young people are most likely to suffer the negative consequences of climate change and are the future leaders of society, it is particularly important to include this group in societal deliberations.
She added: “EEG is proud to play an effective and important role in building the capacity of future generations through this intellectual platform and raises awareness and encourages future generations to find innovative solutions and methods for the future. .”
