G17 University Ambassadors Consortium
Towards a Sustainable University System!
G17 is a fellowship program to empower students to become the next generation of young professionals to make SDGs a reality through its four pillars including capacity building, leadership, policy advocacy, and action. As the initial stage of this program, 170 Undergraduates were appointed as SDG Ambassadors from 10 Sri Lankan Universities and it is governed by the National Executive Committee which is a coalition of 20 Young people coming from diverse backgrounds.
This program aims to not only engage students nationally and internationally, but also empower them with knowledge and skills to become effective agents of change to create a sustainable university system. Ultimately, empowering students to prioritize sustainable development in their lifestyles, behaviours, education and professional career.
WHAT WE DO
We want to enhance the SDG literacy among Sri Lankan university graduates, where knowledge can be further leveraged during and after the academic career to make an involved interdisciplinary community with a sense of belonging and encourage people to become the next generation of changemakers.
The program aims to not only engage students nationally and internationally but also to empower them with the knowledge, skills to become effective agents of change create a Sustainable Sri Lanka. Ultimately empowering students to prioritize sustainable development in their lifestyles, behaviors, education and professional careers.
These are our four pillars in transforming the lives of student ambassadors and creating an impact on the university and beyond it.
