BACKGROUND

The Values of Integrity for the Achievement of Sustainable Development: Resilient Youth Leaders: Drivers of Sustainable Development creative arts competition is part of the Pacific Youth Summit which is being hosted by the University of the South Pacific Students’ Association (USPSA) with support from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) under the United Nations Pacific Regional Anti-Corruption (UN-PRAC) Project funded by the New Zealand Government.

The Summit is organized against the backdrop of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda) and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. The SDGs address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation including sustainability of marine and land-based life, and peace and justice.

Within the inter-connected 17 SDGs, SDG 16 is dedicated to promoting peaceful and inclusive societies, providing access to justice for all and supporting the building of effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels. SDG 16 has been referred to as the “enabling” and transformative Goal for achieving the other SDGs.

Attaining SDG 16 would help drive long-term democratic governance, strengthen resilience against corruption risks, and promote integrity values and tools.
