AKO Foundation is pleased to announce the opening of nominations for the African Youth Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Achievers Awards 2023. The awards recognize and celebrate young Africans who are making significant contributions towards the achievement of the SDGs in Africa.
The SDGs are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. Young people have a critical role to play in this effort, as they represent the largest demographic group in Africa and are key drivers of social and economic change.
The African Youth SDGs Achievers Awards aim to identify and recognize outstanding young individuals who have made tangible and measurable contributions towards the achievement of one or more of the SDGs in their communities or countries. The awards will be presented in various categories, including but not limited to, poverty eradication, research and innovations, education, health, gender equality, and environmental sustainability.
We encourage young Africans between the ages of 18 and 35 or youth led organization/institution to submit their nominations for the awards. Nominations can be submitted online via our website https://sdgachieversawards.org/apply-now/ and will be accepted until 24 April , 2023 . All submissions will be evaluated by a panel of judges composed of experts in sustainable development and youth empowerment.
The African Youth SDGs Achievers Awards will provide a platform for young Africans to showcase their contributions towards the achievement of the SDGs and inspire others to take action. It is our hope that the awards will encourage and support more young people to actively participate in the sustainable development agenda in Africa.
