With 1.8 billion young people in the world today, we have 1.8 billion reasons to do things differently.
Today’s youth are tired of waiting for older generations to take actions on issues threatening their lives. They’re taking matters into their own hands, becoming major actors for causes like climate change, racial and gender equality, universal healthcare and ending violence.
How We’re Partnering
Social movements need demand from young people to fuel change.
We’re supporting the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health’s 1.8 Billion Young People for Change campaign by asking young people from all over about their needs, challenges, and ambitions! Their answers will drive change agendas from the United Nations to their local universities.
