Fundación BogotArt: Letter for Reconciliation chosen as a Global Youth Solution

The initiative Letters for Reconciliation that the BogotArt Foundation co-created in 2017, was recently included in the 2018 Youth Solutions Report, a flagship initiative of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network - Youth, that features 50 game-changing projects led by young people bringing the world closer to achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. This report does an exhaustive work looking at different youth-led solutions coming from all over the world and only the most promising and relevant ones make it to the list.

We are happy to celebrate this important step to advance youth involvement in the realization of the 2030 agenda, where the valuable contribution of young people to sustainable development is highlighted. Nonetheless, we believe that the role of the youth in peacebuilding and conflict prevention is still underrated and without providing us with a seat at the table and concrete mechanisms to further realize our projects, peace sustainability and its innovation will be weaker in the years to come.
