NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Feb 17, 2016) - AIESEC International together with PVBLIC Foundation announced their commitment to raise awareness about how young people can come together to solve world's biggest problems uniting around the Sustainable Development Goals.

Youth will be provided with the activation platform: Youth for Global Goals, a collaborative effort to create positive impact on the ground. The outcome of the survey will provide input for young people to create volunteering and social impact projects that impact communities and solve the world's problems.
