Scaling up online/remote learning, skilling and livelihood platforms
Generation Unlimited will support every youth to have access to learning, skilling, & livelihood opportunities by radically scaling-up access to world-class digital solutions that meet every young person’s unique learning needs.
The world is facing a learning crisis. Hundreds of millions of young people are not developing the skills they need for work, starting a business, or engaging in their community. The quality of and access to education and skill-development opportunities are limited, especially for the most marginalized. The COVID-19 pandemic is poised to deepen this crisis further, with 190 countries having experienced some level of school closures since the start of the pandemic.
COVID-19 has exposed the importance of connecting all young people to learning and skilling opportunities and has induced a once-in-a-generation opportunity to ensure all young people access opportunities to develop the skills to realize their potential.
Generation Unlimited will support every youth to have access to learning, skilling, and livelihood opportunities by radically scaling-up access to world-class digital solutions that meet every young person’s unique learning needs and context. From artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to digital learning platforms, we have the tools we need to craft a modern education whereby millions of young people can continue their education online, anytime, anywhere.
Our goal is ambitious and it will require a collective vision, commitment and investment from all partners. Hence, together with public and private sector partners, GenU will mobilize financial, in-kind, and technical resources required to unlocking opportunities to develop skills—foundational, transferable, digital, entrepreneurial, and job-specific— that every young person needs and demands to prepare for a better future. GenU will also join forces with UNICEF under the Reimagine Education umbrella to build political and institutional commitments for solutions that work for the most marginalized young people.
