About SDG Junior Amassador Programme

The Sustainable Development Goals (also known as Global Goals or SDG) were agreed by global leaders at the United Nations in 2015 to shape the future of the world, and bring countries together to continue the work started by the Millennium Development Goals. The 17 new Global Goals represent an ambitious agenda to end poverty, fight climate change, and tackle all forms of inequality by 2030. In response to the Goals, the Hong Kong Girl Guides Association will collaborate with JCI Hong Kong Jayceettes to launch the “SDG Junior Ambassador Programme”, with the theme “Environment, Health and Well-being”. Through participation in SDG trainings, not only will the Brownies and Guides be able to enhance leadership skills, this will also encourage promotion of the United Nations SDGs at the community level and become a keen advocate to promote actions that respond to the goals.
