MTEI student Olusegun Osunrinde joined other youth leaders from around the world at The Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Youth Forum 2019 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York early in April.
"The Economic and Social Youth Forum is a platform for young leaders around the world to engage in a dialogue with United Nations Member States as well as regional and global actors to share ideas for advancing the 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development,” he writes in his LinkedIn profile. “My group pushed for a review of Sustatinable Development Goal (SDG) 4 - Quality Education. We recommended the development of educational programs on the UN Values such as Climate Change and SDGs at school level & equipping youth with the necessary skills for the 21st century. It was indeed a great experience."
