Sustainability is about ensuring the environment of today is here for the future generation’s of tomorrow and Challenge Wales is keen to play its part in the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of Wales. But as our sail training voyages move through UK and international waters we can take our sustainability ethos with us as part of a legacy and engage with a wide range of young people and youth organisations.
It can be easy to talk about these things but what exactly are we doing?
The United Nations has 17 Sustainable Development Goals and plays a big role in encouraging sustainable progress. Although we may indirectly contribute to some of these through the different young people’s groups, organisations and businesses we work with, our primary focus is on Goal number 14: Life Below Water
However, other goals we work with through our sail training programme and activities are; Goal 4 – Quality Education, Goal 5 – Gender Equality, Goal 10 – Reduced Inequalities and Goal 17 – Partnerships for the Goals.
