The Youth 4 Sustainability (Y4S) platform, held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Member of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council and Chairman of Abu Dhabi Executive Office, is a year-long, youth-led program dedicated to creating awareness of the skills needed for future jobs in the green economy, and educating up to one million young people in sustainability by 2030 through a blended learning experience. By engaging youth through workshops, debates, training programs and networking opportunities, the Y4S platform prepares them to become the sustainability leaders of tomorrow.

Supported by Principal Partner Abu Dhabi Department of Energy, the 2022 Y4S Forum was held at ADSW under the theme: Building youth adaptability and resilience for a sustainable future. The three-day forum was staged in a hybrid format, combining live and virtual events at The Hive at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC). ADSW 2022 also featured the Y4S Hub – a dedicated space at The Hive that connected students to local organizations and innovative tools for experiential learning opportunities that educate, empower and inspire youth to become more involved in sustainability.
