The UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) has been operating since 2012 under the auspices of the UN Secretary-General. SDSN mobilizes global scientific and technological expertise to promote practical solutions for sustainable development, including the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement.
The SDSN Youth is an initiative of the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN). It was launched in 2015 with a mission to empower youth globally to create sustainable development solutions.
At SDSN Youth, we empower young people to take meaningful action on the Sustainable Development Goals. By joining our global team, you will be working with a diverse and exceptional group of individuals with a variety of cultural, religious and political backgrounds, committed to sustainable development.
SDSN Youth is a network of 650+ member organizations based in more than 85 different countries. SDSN Youth has more than 140 team members (staff, volunteers and interns) working in more than 30 different countries across 20 Regional/ National networks.
Each Youth Regional/National Network is led by a Network Coordinator (SDSN Youth) who focuses on localizing the SDGs in their region.
SDSN Youth has 20 regional/national networks across the globe. Our networks localize youth SDG action in their respective countries. Our team, the Networks sub-team, supports our Network Coordinators, through helping them solve challenges, to drive the growth and scaling of their networks, aligning execution approach with our goals, and drive new initiatives via a regional strategy.
We are hiring Regional Focal Points, who work closely with Network Coordinators to refine the regional strategies and represent the networks in executive discussions.
The role involves the coordination of people (Network Coordinators, and the global team). This would be an ideal position for someone who enjoys problem-solving, working with people, and wants to dive deep into how different countries/cultures implement the SDGs.
The Project Officer (Networks) will be someone who has experience in program management, and business strategy. They will be someone who possesses the organizational, communication and problem-solving skills, working in a team in order to maximize SDSN Youth’s internal performance.
