UNITED NATIONS YOUNG LEADERS TRAINING PROGRAMME

Today, there are an estimated 1.8 billion people aged 10 to 24, constituting the biggest generation of youth in human history.Their numbers are predicted to grow—between 2015 and 2030, almost 1.9 billion young people are expected to reach the age of 15.

Young people are more connected than ever before, and they are increasingly contributing to innovative solutions, driving social improvement, and motivating political initiatives. They are change agents, mobilizing to promote the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to enhance people’s lives and the health of the planet.

As a result, UNITAR is glad to provide an online training program in Geneva tailored exclusively for the global young. It will offer participants the chance to gain first-hand experience of the United Nations and will provide them with the necessary knowledge and skills to fully unfold their potential as global leaders.
