RAJSHAHI: Responsive and effective role of the youth volunteer organisations is very important towards supplementing the government efforts to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, reports BSS.

More other youth organisations should come forward and work together with better understanding to infuse dynamism in all the nation-building process and activities to make those sustainable in the greater interest of achieving SDGs within the stipulated time.

The observation came at a discussion titled “Youth knowledge and activities: Exchange and sharing Session related to SDGs” at Cookie Jar restaurant conference hall in Rajshahi city Thursday afternoon.

Hosted by Bangladesh Resource Centre for Indigenous Knowledge (BARCIK), a research-based development organization, the sharing session was attended by some 35 executives and front-ranking leaders of more than 16 youth volunteer organizations who are implementing various benevolent works in the city and its adjacent areas.

BARCIK Regional Coordinator Shahidul Islam gave an overview of the 17 SDGs and their indicators in his multimedia presentation while General Secretary of Rajshahi Press Club Aslam-Ud-Dowla spoke as resource person.
