Abstract

Academics have discussed stakeholders engagement in attaining Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). This study deliberates stakeholder’s engagement in the execution of youth-led SDG-associated initiatives in Malaysia. Twenty-five youth leaders from different youth drives were interviewed, and their stakeholder’s engagement was analysed. This study encapsulates that in youth-led programmes, Malaysian youth movements have engaged with global and national-level SDG stakeholders as emphasised by the United Nations (UN). However, there is limited engagement with the international entities, governments, and private sector. The findings of this study provide insight into the country’s SDG governance and its stakeholder’s engagement from the youth movement perspective.
