With education, skills and empowerment, these young people will help transform economies and nations. But a fast-changing global economy demands increasingly specialized skills at a time when many education systems are struggling.
Generation Unlimited brings together the private sector, governments, international and local organizations – and young people – to identify and scale up the best solutions for three major challenges: access to secondary age education, acquisition of employability skills and empowerment, especially of girls.
We are building a new and dynamic model: co-creating innovative solutions; brokering support, mentoring and funding; placing young people at the forefront of change.
Young people will be co-creators of solutions, actively engaged as “solvers” in the Youth Challenge process. The Youth Challenge will open space for them to crowdsource new solutions and boost interest among youth.
Young People will participate in all key decisions of the partnership. A combination of online and offline channels will be used to bring young people into governance processes.
Generation Unlimited will influence global policy and practice for young people, and it will demonstrate new standards for linking young people into policy debate at all levels.
The partnership will prioritize inclusion of young voices across the spectrum of ideas, cultures and contexts. It will link existing youth networks and organizations to advance a global dialogue on youth participation.
