Other than conferences, GYC on SDGs thriving youth communities are also proactive to initiate new SDGs movements. Join one of the programs below and be one of our changemakers that will be featured in our annual conference.
Plastic pollution is a serious problem in Indonesia, with an estimated 64 million tons of plastic waste generated each year. This issue has detrimental effects on the environment and human health. As a response, the members of the Global Youth Conference on SDGs initiated the Plastic Diet movement. This movement encourages waste segregation and reduction of single-use plastics through a measurable, systematic, and independent approach.
The Diet Plastik movement does not aim to replace existing waste management programs but serves as a gateway for the wider community to be part of the solution by taking the first step. Led by Indonesian youth, it has become a new trend in the spirit of a waste-free world. Join the Plastic Diet movement and become a role model for a better environment! ♻️🌍👍
