At the World Urban Forum (WUF) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in February 2017, the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network - Youth Initiative (SDSN Youth) was pleased to gather 11 outstanding young urban leaders from different cities.
These young urban leaders are the inaugural Local Pathways Fellows, a network of young thought leaders, urban planners, researchers and innovators from over 50 cities to advance local dialogue, collaboration and problem-solving around the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to make cities “smart, fair and sustainable”.
Through a 12-month training program and peer-to-peer learning, the Fellowship empowers youth to implement the SDGs in their cities.
