This free sustainable development program is looking for youth ambassadors

Want to save the world but don’t know where to start? Global community Makesense and Citi Foundation have teamed up to develop this year’s Youth 4 Sustainable Cities—a free program that aims to encourage the Filipino youth towards making more sustainable and inclusive cities.

Youth 4 Sustainable Cities is the first phase of a 10-year Philippine-based Pathways to Progress initiative that seeks to engage and involve the local youth with the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs) and urban sustainable development. 

If you’re a student or young professional aged 18-30 years old living in Manila, Cebu, or Dumaguete who can dedicate three to four hours a week for training, is all for innovation and building sustainable cities, and would be absolutely game to engage in regional and global communities, then you might just be one of the 50 people they’re looking for.

The chosen ambassadors will take on a 15-month stint of learning from community development officers, accessing different resources (design thinking workshops, social enterprise incubation program, etc.), delving into opportunities to be featured on Makesense and Citi Foundation’s platforms, and immersing in a network of equally passionate volunteers and mentors in more than 300 cities around the world.

For more information, head over to Makesense’s page. Or sign up here. Applications run until Jan. 5, 2020 only. Get that social impact!
