A popular member of the Chinese boy band TFBOYS, Yuan Wang, spoke at the UN youth forum to advocate to end poverty, combat climate change and promote gender equality. The goals came directly from the UN-facilitated 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Wang specifically emphasized the need for equal access for all young people to quality education regardless of gender. Wang was just one of many young influencers at the forum who came together to promote the United Nations’ sustainable development goals. (Posted by Natalie Riso)
