The Project context: The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. These 17 Goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals, while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals are interconnected – often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another. The SDGs work in the spirit of partnership and pragmatism to make the right choices now to improve life, in a sustainable way, for future generations. They provide clear guidelines and targets for all countries to adopt in accordance with their own priorities and the environmental challenges of the world at large. Grassroots ownership of the SDGs is one of the factors which will lead to the desired results. In this regard, awareness creation forms part of change-oriented communication in which all the sustainable development goals (SDGs) and target are communicated to community groups in response to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In responding to this, volunteers will become stimulated to contribute their own ideas and energies, thus contributing to live debates on sustainable issues. This will be realized through community events, interactive sessions on the SGDs and their targets, capacity building for community stakeholders and dialogue with local Government authorities in relations to SDGs and the targets.
This project is suitable for a person who is open minded, flexible, ready to learn and adopt to other cultures, interested in physical/outdoor activities, interest and knowledgeable on global development issues, ability to work under less supervision and minimum resources.
Most countries will need visa to stay in the country. Volunteers need to apply for a business visa which is valid for 90 days and cannot be extended. This visa can be obtained at the airport on arrival and other entry boarders. Official invitation letter from UVIKIUTA is required.
