Lektor Mette Fog Olwig

Can the world’s youth unite across geopolitical divides to address the Sustainable Development Goals?

Young people who are committed to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and are combating climate change or tackling other global challenges, may have unequal opportunities to participate, depending on where they come from in the world. How do young people experience the discrepancy between expectations of equal, global partnerships and their very different life circumstances? This is what Associate Professor Mette Fog Olwig from Roskilde University will investigate in a new research project.
