Hundreds of young people gathered to #FlipTheScript on climate, justice and peace during the Global Week to #Act4SDGs from September 16–30 2022, altering the course of history for future generations. The G17 Bhutan University Ambassadors participated in the activities, helping to raise awareness at the SDG Booth. Having undergone an intensive one-year program to cultivate knowledge on the SDGs, the ambassadors took part in the worldwide movement to create a sustainable future, disseminating information on the SDGs at the booth.
The activity's main aim was to take action on goals number 13 and 7, which deal with climate action and affordable and clean energy respectively. The ambassadors provided an outline of the 17 SDGs that must be achieved by 2030, as the earth is becoming a dangerous place to live in as a result of unchecked development in the world. The ambassadors also spoke to students about the SDGs and exhorted them to take action to address these global problems and make the world a better place to live in. They were ecstatic to have this opportunity to express their concerns about climate change and take action for the sake of themselves and society.
It is our responsibility to conserve, preserve, and advance the earth for future generations. If you don't act immediately to combat climate change and its effects, it will already be too late when you realize that you could have made a difference. Instead of regretting it afterwards, let's "face the difficulties" right now.
