An educational session ‘International Youth Cooperation for Sustainable Development’ has become a concluding event of the summer marathon devoted to the support of Sustainable Development Goals and the contest ‘Impact of Business. Local Solutions to Global Problems’. It took place in Orenburg on September 6 under the auspices of the Youth International Forum ‘Eurasia’.

The session was organized by the National Youth Council of Russia, which presented key directions and opportunities of international cultural and humanitarian cooperation and partnership on sustainable development that allow for engaging youth into the global discussion and contributes to broadening their knowledge on current trends of international youth dialogue and thematic international projects. Participants discussed direction of work of the UN Global Compact Local Network in Russia, opportunities of participation in the youth contest ‘Impact of Business. Local Solutions to Global Problems’ and integration into joint youth projects of the Russian Federation and the Council of Europe, Russia and CIS into the project ‘Involving Youth of Russia into Activities of Achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’ and many other topics.

 During the session there was announced a new appeal for the Youth SDGs Envoys of Russia and, probably, there are ones not only among students and participants of youth forums, but also among young specialists of UN GC participants and partners in Russia.
