About JYPS

Japan Youth Platform for Sustainability : JYPS

JYPS is a "platform" where the voices of Japanese youths are consolidated and delivered as policies to the Japanese government, the United Nations, and civil society for discussion to create the Agenda for Sustainable Development 2030 adopted by the United Nations in 2015 and other international frameworks. Our goal is to realize the voices of young people from diverse backgrounds and thus transform society.  


We strive for a world with fair and equitable society by ensuring that the opinions of every member of society is equally reflected in policies.


We enable youth to reflect their opinions on government and international frameworks by establishing, managing, and improving a democratic self-governing system that collect and coordinate the voices of youth.

Toward Realising

Sustainable Society


SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) consists of 17 goals and 169 targets which are required to realize a sustainable society.

They were adopted in the United Nations General Assembly in September 2015, and the deadline is set to the year 2030.

SDGs carries the legacy and lessons from MDGs (Millennium Development Goals), which underwent three years of governmental negotiations and amendment.

The SDGs aims to hand over a sustainable society for the future generations by calling for collaborative efforts between stakeholders in all regions and countries, on three key areas: society, environment, and economy.
