This year’s 17-leg event aims to represent all 17 of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Each location highlighted a specific SDG, featuring insightful talks and engaging activities to empower the youth.

The final event of the Visayas leg took place at SM City Cebu on May 28, with a focus on UN SDG 3: Good Health and Well-Being. Nearly 400 attendees participated, gaining valuable insights into health and wellness, and understanding its critical role in personal and economic development.
