Title: Faces of Poverty, Faces of Sustainability in Philippines
YSDA is part of the Philippine Sustainability Watch Network and the World Environment Day (WED) Philippine network and is aimed at raising the awareness of the youth concerning the eight MDGs (Millennium Development Goals). The project promotes the MDG’s focus, particularly the link between environmental sustainability (MDG7) on the one side, and poverty reduction (MDG1) and global partnership (MDG8) on the other. The campaign consists of multimedia exhibitions and seminars on campuses and in villages in areas where YSDA members are operating in order to strengthen their goals. It is designed to tell the story of poverty and how it is directly linked to the issue of sustainable development.
