Sustainable development is one that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. A sustainable future is one in which a healthy environment, economic prosperity, and social justice are pursued simultaneously to ensure the well being and quality of life of present and future generations. Education is crucial to attaining that future. For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and all of us.
Youth Sports Games have embraced the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and are commited to actively promote those values. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets demonstrate the scale and ambition of this new universal Agenda. They are integrated and indivisible and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, social and environmental.
The Agenda is accepted by all countries and is applicable to all, taking into account different national realities, capacities and levels of development and respecting national policies and priorities. These are universal goals and targets which involve the entire world, including both developed and developing countries.
Sport is an important contributor to Sustainable development. We recognize its importance to the realization of Sustainable goals. We understand that social and economic development depends on the sustainable management of our planet’s natural resources, acknowledge the natural and cultural diversity of the world and recognize that all cultures and civilizations are crucial enablers of Sustainable development.
Our partners are Companies, Governments and public institutions but we also work closely with regional and local authorities, subregional institutions, international institutions, academias, philanthropic organizations, volunteer groups and others.
