This United Nations Agenda 2030 established 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030. It was envisaged that SDGs would only be achievable through holistic collaboration between government, non-government organisations and industry. Implementations requires systemic analysis of problems and integrated cross-government and cross-sectorial policy and strategy. A purpose of this project is to design and conduct research into how youth work can contribute to this program and what support would be required. Ideally this is a PhD project. There is potential for an Australian focus, an international focus, or a comparative focus. It may be possible to design a more bounded research project evaluating local initiatives for a Masters degree.
