Uyolo is the new community for #changemakers.
Global environmental and social challenges, such as climate change and the global migration crisis, require everyone - governments, companies, non-profit organizations and citizens -
to take action.
In particular, action is needed if we wish to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the 17 ambitious Global Goals set by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 2015, to accomplish by 2030 an economic growth that is sustainable, inclusive, and respectful of the people and of the environment.
Uyolo is a community for committed individuals, for high-impact and trust-worthy non-profit organizations, and for responsible businesses, wishing to join forces to achieve the SDGs and... change the world!
Ours can be the first generation to end poverty – and the last generation to address climate change before it is too late
UN Secretary-General Ban-Ki Moon
Our mission is to inspire and empower
youths to take action.
We envision a world where
Caring means Sharing.
"Uyolo" means "happiness" in Xhosa, the South African language spoken by Nelson Mandela. For us, a happy world is a fair world, where the rights of people and the planet are the center of the choices we make, every day.
