Bhutan's first year participating in the G17 University Ambassadors Consortium is in 2022. The team has been eager to participate in the events directed by the Global Task Force ever since learning that every September, the fellowship program celebrated the Global Week to #Act4SDGs. The 17 University Ambassadors used the SDG Action Instagram filter "Flip the Script" at the College of Natural Resources in Bhutan. They have committed to taking sustainable action in order to work towards the Global Goals. They pledged to "take action in reducing waste and reusing products", "stand up for gender equality and support all genders in their active participation'', "promote the use of renewable energy," "feed the hungry and create opportunity for everyone to live prosperous lives," among a number of other causes.
A video containing all of the ambassadors' messages has been uploaded to the G17 Bhutan social media channels. Moreover, the team has invited Mr. Ugyen Dorji, a lecturer by profession and an active conservationist, to give a brief discussion on the Sustainable Development Goals in order to motivate the audience and to verify the ambassadors' involvement. He currently teaches at the College of Natural Resources and holds a Master's degree in Forestry. In his remarks, he emphasized that the SDGs are doable objectives that will aid in the establishment of peaceful and affluent societies, while also reducing activities that are harmful to the environment. Additionally, he noted that Bhutan, a small nation, has been helping to advance the SDGs since its 12th Five-Year Plan comprises 17 major result areas that are relevant to the 17 SDGs.
The ambassadors' participation in the Global Week to #Act4SDGs has been fruitful as they took part in tree planting and made commitments for a better future. The G17 Bhutan community is eager to carry out more initiatives like these that will promote knowledge of and advocacy for the SDGs, thereby fostering group action for a healthy world.
