Why the Young Australians Plan for the Planet?

In 2016 the United Nations launched the Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) as the framework to achieve worldwide sustainable development. The Young Australians’ Plan for the Planet provides an approach that enables promotion and delivery of these SDGs throughout Australia utilising an innovative national extracurricular schools program.

The Plan for the Planet approach was developed to leverage the effectiveness of business planning and management principles and practice to achieve sustainable outcomes at local, regional and global levels.
