As the MDGs come to an end, the world is formulating a new set of goals, called the SDGs, which are aiming at putting an end to some of the great development challenges across the planet with the help of young people. Half the world’s population is under thirty and the size of this youth population is set to peak in the next few years. As the world enters ‘Peak Youth’, young people will become the biggest stakeholders in the new development framework.
