Strategic Youth Network For Development

The Strategic Youth Network for Development (SYND) was established in September 2008 with the aim of contributing to youth development interventions in Ghana. Our vision is to achieve environmental sustainability through active youth inclusion in the governance of climate related thematic areas. SYND aims to be a bridge between Ghanaian government and youth on climate and other environmental related issues. Our primary goal is to reduce fossil fuel related emissions through youth inclusion in: Governance of the natural resources and Formulation, implementation and review of existing environmental sector policies, programs, and projects from local to national level. We believe that it is critical to engage young people actively in climate-related decisions as it will not only help them cope or adapt to climate impacts but also will guarantee the sustainability of interventions by duty bearers or policymakers in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our key strategies to achieve our vision and goal are conducting research on climate change-related issues from the youth perspective; developing communication and advocacy materials such as policy briefs, position papers, fact sheets, and case studies; training young people as key actors contributing to the planning and implementation of climate and other environmental interventions at all levels of the decision making, and mobilizing young people for non-violent demonstrations or walk-in demands for climate actions.

What drives us
