SDG 17: Partnerships for the goals

Quand j’ai été choisie pour la mission de développer des contenus sur les Objectifs de Développement Durable en Colombie, j’étais très enthousiaste. Pendant 17 semaines, je devais créer des publications sur les réseaux sociaux à propos de chacun des 17 ODDs, partager des informations, des faits, des photos, des statistiques et/ou des vidéos sur les ODDs en Colombie. Etant Mexicaine, j’ai aussi inclus des contenus venant de mon pays.

SDG 17: Partnerships for the goals

When I was accepted for the assignment to develop content about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Colombia, I was very excited. For 17 weeks, I was expected to create social media posts about each of the 17 SDGs, share information, facts, photos, statistics and/or videos about SDGs in Colombia. Since I am Mexican, I also included content from my own country.

SDG 17: Partnerships for the goals

The month of December was passing by and my sadness had turned into depression. At that moment, I had lived outside of Venezuela for almost two years, since I, like many other young people from my country, felt the need to look for opportunities beyond our borders. However, in my case, my stay in Colombia had become more challenging than expected: I couldn’t find a job where I could utilize my skills and professional knowledge, and I was quite far from content.

Volunteerism enables youth engagement, leadership and participation

Within Latin America and the Caribbean, young people between the ages of 15 and 24 account for 20 per cent of the population. This is the largest percentage of youth in this region, ever.  The statistics are dire: 35 million of these young people never attended school, 39 per cent live in poverty and 25 per cent are unemployed.

SDG 17: Partnerships for the goals

I was selected as a UN Online Volunteer for a project in which we developed content on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and spread it on social networks.
