Capturing Global Goals in 1-minute

Be a part of YEC 2024!

Young Educators have to create two short videos to raise awareness and inspire action for a Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) in Malaysia and suggest ways to make a difference.

Whether it's combating climate change, promoting quality education, or advocating for gender equality, achieving all 17 goals and 169 targets set by the United Nations (UN) is no small feat and requires everyone to collaborate, especially youths - our Young Educators! For the first time, YEC unites youth across Malaysia to inspire and educate on the SDGs: Our universal call to action to build a brighter future.
