A global and local initiative, Generation Unlimited aims to transfer education, employment, and entrepreneurial outcomes for young people (10-24) around the world, by bringing together businesses, governments, and the United Nations’ reach and network.

Young people are already involved in co-designing and implementing solutions in over 40 countries through the generation unlimited youth challenge 2019/20 and the global volunteer initiative.
