How Generation Unlimited is creating a global public-private coalition with and for young people.
With leadership from UNICEF, the World Bank, the Governments of Ireland and the Netherlands, Dubai Cares, Unilever and others, Generation Unlimited is developing a powerful approach to bridge education and training to employment and entrepreneurship on a massive scale.
The partnership brings together the private sector, governments, multilateral organizations, civil society and young people to:
- Identify scalable and bankable initiatives and global breakthroughs that attract partnerships and investment for better education, skills, entrepreneurship and employment for millions of young people.
- Attract investment at global and national levels to make effective programmes grow and achieve results for millions of young people.
- Scale innovations by brokering investments and shared value partnerships in areas such as digital connectivity, remote learning and work, entrepreneurship, job-matching platforms, mental health and the green economy.
- Co-create solutions with the youth to ensure they are drivers and agents of social change
