Sustainable Youth Goals

As part of its 2030 Vision, CYIS is committed to shaping an equitable environment to foster critical and creative thinking for all youth. The Sustainable Youth Goals (SYGs) enable the Centre to create a more suitable world for the next generation of decision-makers to express their voice on youth vulnerability in all aspects of society.

Ensuring Good & Inclusive Governance

Foster youth engagement in political processes to enhance the scope of Accountability and Trust Measures (ATMs) underpinning Human Rights, the Rule of Law and Democracy to avert Unconstitutional Changes of Governments (UCGs) and political fragmentation.

Combating Transnational Organized Crime

Support through intelligence-driven and accurate research the creation of a youth action plan against transnational threats (Arms/Drugs Trafficking and Illicit Activities) ensuring the freedom of movement for persons, goods, services and commerce.
