Sustainable Development Goals are a worldwide concern. Indeed, to date, almost the entirety of world countries have formally committed to achieve them by 2030. Across world regions and countries, however, the extent to which they are addressed, and the means used to do so, vary substantially. While some governments have established appropriate offices and are seeking a dialogue with their citizens, others are lagging back, still reflecting on how this could be done. Keen to identify possible ways to address the SDGs at domestic level, the Vietnamese government, in cooperation with the UNDP, contracted the Center for Sustainable Development Studies to conduct the first ever national survey on perception of Sustainable Development Goals among Vietnamese young people. The current article presents the results of the survey, carried out between November 2017 and January 2018, during which the team collected 7116 responses from all the 64 administrative provinces of Vietnam.
