DRAFTING THE FIRST UN RESOLUTION EVER

On 25 September 2015, the 193 members of the UN General Assembly adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that will dictate the global development agenda until 2030. At last year’s Youth Fashion Summit, more than 100 students from around the world explored how the SDGs could represent opportunities for companies to align their own sustainability goals with broader societal aims. This year, the same students are invited back to transform their ideas and demands for corporate action related to the SDGs into a draft for a UN resolution.

The students will present their resolution on stage at the Copenhagen Fashion Summit the 11 May 2017 to inspire the industry to take action. This fall the students have been invited to present their work during UN General Assembly.

In the months running up to the Summit a couple of webinars will provide the students with different approaches, tools and inspirations, supplemented by best practice examples. Below you can visit the webinars and sign up to the upcoming ones.
