And this is how we localize the SDGs! When people on the grassroots level can influence policymakers.
In Zambia, our partners Circus Zambia in the project Localising the SDGs started this process with the youth by addressing three main questions:
What a policy is?
Who are policymakers? and
How youths could have a concrete impact on policymaking?
Yesterday, Thursday 31, Circus Zambia hosted the Policy Reflection Meeting. This comes as an opportunity for the youths to find support among partners and stakeholders in the creation of policies suggestions that might increase the visibility of SDGs in Zambia.
The meeting was joined by BORDA ZAMBIA and SISTAH-SISTAH FOUNDATION, and some representatives from UN Zambia and SDG in Centro Africa, two of the main entities that promote the visibility of SDGs in the country.
Our task force is now ready to face one of the last phases of the two cycles of the SDGs.
