SDSN Launches Call for Applicants for the 2020 Local Pathways

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- The UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network – Youth Initiative (SDSN Youth) announced the launch of the call for applications for the 2020 cohort of its Local Pathways Fellowship program. The Fellowship is one of the world's leading training and research programs on SDG 11 for young urban leaders. It offers the knowledge, resources, and platform needed to empower young urban innovators to take local actions for the implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda in their localities.

The Fellowship guides and informs the fellows’ advocacy and outreach work, provides them with a framework for engagement with local stakeholders, facilitates mutual learning and exchange of urban solutions, and supports their efforts to promote local understanding, dialogue, and problem-solving for sustainable development.

Each year, the Local Pathways Fellowship brings together a network of young thought leaders, urban planners, sustainability practitioners, researchers, and innovators from more than fifty cities across the world to advance local dialogue, collaboration, and problem-solving around Sustainable Development Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities (SDG 11) to make cities and urban settlements “smart, fair and sustainable''. As announced at the Vatican Youth Symposium on October 16th, 2019, the Local Pathways 2020 cohort is expanding to a hundred cities and has redesigned its curriculum to help fellows develop skills that will be in high demand in 2020.

The Fellowship is open to outstanding young leaders between 18 and 30 years of age, who have demonstrated commitment to working toward sustainable urban development. Successful applicants should have a minimum of one year of professional or academic experience in development practice, urban planning, community engagement, and advocacy, or similar. The chosen fellows should be based in the same city throughout the entire Fellowship, from January to November 2020.

The 2020 Local Pathways Fellowship application period opens on November 1, 2019, and runs until December 15th, 2019. The selected fellows will be notified on January 25th, 2020. Applications and additional information are available at
