The strategic guidelines of UN Youth of Finland are concentrated on making the sustainable development goals known among the youth. During the years of 2014 and 2015 the association looked into the opinions of the Finnish youth by carrying out a national inquiry of the sustainable development goals. The target was to survey which themes are the most important for the youth when creating a better world. Based on the results, the most important aspects for the youth are the environment, a secure life and equality. These themes go hand in hand with the sustainable development goals which were ratified by the General Assembly in 2015.
The strategy includes the values, the vision and the mission that guide the activities of the UN Youth of Finland in the long term. The strategy also reveals the role and the goals that guide the actions.
The strategy has been formulated in cooperation with the member associations. The preparations have been led by the board and chairs of UN Youth of Finland. The wishes, strengths and prospects of the member associations have been taken into account when preparing the strategy. The strategy is also based on the inquiry made in 2014 and 2015 in which the Finnish youth between the ages of 13 and 29 expressed their views on the sustainable development goals.
