This article focuses on two specific aims that aim to drive sustainable development progress and citizen engagement.
The first aim is to explore groundbreaking technological solutions that offer a systemic approach to accelerate the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These solutions are designed for use UN agencies, local authorities, and civil society. They aim to facilitate the measurement, reporting, verification, and certification of SDG actions. Additionally, the integration of gamification enhances engagement and participation in the pursuit of these goals.
The second aim builds on the Global Youth DeclarAction on Sustainable Urbanization, which was adopted at the World Urban Forum XI. The aim is to update the current Declaration creating “Local Pacts for the Future”. These pacts address immediate and critical concerns such as climate change. The Local Pacts will provide a framework for global citizens to articulate their vision for a sustainable future. They will also allow individuals and local communities to make specific pledges and commitments to building such futures. The intention is for these commitments to serve as an avenue for engagement with the UN Summit of the Future in 2024.
By combining technological solutions with citizen engagement, these aims seek to drive progress towards sustainable development. The systemic approach offered these technologies enables a more efficient and coordinated effort in achieving the SDGs. The gamification aspect further enhances engagement and encourages active participation from all stakeholders.
In conclusion, these aims represent a proactive and inclusive approach towards the future of sustainable development. By leveraging technological solutions and citizen engagement, we can accelerate progress towards the SDGs, addressing critical concerns and building a sustainable future for generations to come.
