Sustainable development is one that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. A sustainable future is one in which a healthy environment, economic prosperity and social justice are pursued at the same time to ensure the well-being and quality of life of present and future generations. Education is the key to achieve that future. To objectives have been achieved, everyone should do their part: government, private sector, civil society and every one of us.
Youth Sports Games have embraced the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and they are committed to actively promoting these values. Seventeen goals of sustainable development and 169 intentions show the scale and ambition of this new universal program. They are integrated and indivisible, balancing three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental.
The agenda has been embraced by all countries and is applicable to all, taking into account the different national realities, capacities and levels of development and respect for national policies and priorities. It is about universal goals and intentions that involve the whole world, including developed and developing countries.
Sport has an important contribution to sustainable development. We are aware of its importance for achieving sustainable goals. We understand that social and economic development depends on the sustainable management of our planet's natural resources, we recognize the natural and cultural diversity of the world, and recognize that all cultures and civilizations are key factors in sustainable development.
Our partners are businesses, governments and public institutions, but we also work closely with regional and local authorities, sub regional institutions, international institutions, academies, philanthropic organizations, volunteer groups and others.
