OVERVIEW

Across the globe, less than half of the world’s 1.3 billion youth (15-24 years old) are participating in the labour market, and youth are three times than adults as likely to be unemployed. These numbers are many times higher among youth who are refugees and migrants, living in extreme poverty.

UNICEF has partnered with Cartedo, Atingi, GenU, Goodwall and others to launch an experiential learning journey with and for youth across all world regions to respond to these issues and to empower youth in reimagining their future. This is an opportunity for youth to dream big, connect, learn and innovate and move from aspirations to action.
