Inspiration & Learning
I deeply appreciate the incredible platform that empowered the youth with strategies and knowledge to actively contribute towards the sustainable development within the Sub-Saharan Africa Region. The discussions and presentations were both thought-provoking and inspiring, touching on innovative ideas and initiatives. Thank you, YouSustain.
The 2022 YOUSUSTAIN conference organised by GAYO and its partners will remain an unforgettable experience, judging by its grandeur in uniting young scholars in climate change, circular economy, and environmental sustainability. I am glad to have participated both as a presenter and a learner in the conference, and I hope that GAYO and its partners will continue to push forward this unparalleled idea.
Attending last year’s YouSustain Conference was truly inspiring. Witnessing the passion and initiatives of youth addressing climate change, WASH, circular economy, and more, left me motivated to take action and contribute to the climate action agenda.
