Strategic Youth Network for Development (SYND) is a youth-oriented NGO in Ghana championing youth inclusion in the governance of natural resources and the environmental sector. Our core mission is to amplify youth voices, empowering them to shape policies for a climate-secure future. We equip youth leaders with capacities and platforms to engage in Climate Change, Biodiversity, Forestry, and Renewable Energy.



We envision that young people and future generations in Ghana will have healthy ecosystems supporting their livelihoods and well-being, with natural resources used sustainably.



Our core challenge is the silence of youth voices within the pivotal climate and environmental sectors. This silence not only stifles fresh ideas but also jeopardises the sustainability of the world we’re set to inherit.


Our mission is to ensure that youth voices are not just heard but become integral in shaping the world we’re destined to steward.


One of the ways we advocate for youth perspectives on climate justice is through our Youth in Natural Resources and Environmental Governance (Youth-NREG) platform. This platform offers opportunities for youth to be heard, learn, share ideas, and collaborate on climate cum environmental crisis solutions. Through genuine youth-led and collective climate action, we help build a sustainable future that considers present realities.
