Why We are Hosting a Sustainable Impact Summit?

Sustainable Impact Summit

In a world where the call for sustainable development is growing each day, it is clear that the need for innovative solutions has become more apparent. Enter the Sustainable Impact Summit, presented by Young & Restless, an event that not only celebrates the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) but also seeks to raise awareness and engagement toward a sustainable future. This summit is not just an event; it’s a call for action, especially for the young and restless spirits eager to make a tangible impact.

The Young Eye Initiative


Young & Restless, recently launched in November 2023, has taken lead towards developing the summit.  As a product of the Young Eye Initiative – aimed at representing the needs, interest and aspirations of young people. This falls in line with the work Young & Restless has been involved in. By focusing on the SDGs, we aim to harness the innovative spirit and creative vision of young people to address the planet’s most pressing challenges from a sustainability lens.

A Platform for Sustainability


The Sustainable Impact Summit serves as a vibrant platform where our voices are not only heard but amplified collectively. It recognizes that young people bring fresh perspectives, revolutionary ideas, and an intrinsic drive for change that can reshape our approach to sustainability. Through this summit, Young & Restless seeks to empower our peers to take the lead, showcasing their contributions towards sustainable development and encouraging their peers to follow suit.

This is why we have partnered with fellow peer groups at UW Campus to amplify this message – SDG Impact Alliance and Climate Justice Ecosystem among others.

Celebrating Innovation and Action


During the UN SDG Week in March (4th -8th), the Sustainable Impact Summit scheduled for 9th March, will spotlight the remarkable efforts of thought leaders, change-makers, and innovative companies dedicated to the SDGs. This gathering will showcase the power of collaboration and innovation in advancing sustainable impact. Attendees will have the unique opportunity to gain insights from peers and pioneers in sustainability, engage in meaningful discussions, and explore new avenues for action!

The Young Eye Innovators Award


A highlight of the Sustainable Impact Summit is the inaugural Young Eye Innovators Award ceremony. This competition is designed to recognize and reward a startup that demonstrates an unwavering commitment to implementing one or more of the SDGs. With a $1,000 prize on the line, the pitch competition is more than just a contest; it’s an incubator for ideas that could revolutionize our approach to sustainable development. It exemplifies the summit’s commitment to fostering innovation and supporting young entrepreneurs who are eager to make a difference.
