We know that this is only just the start. There’s a whole lot more to be said and done.
Millions more ideas to explore. But to create this dialogue, we need your help. The mission is simple: listen and gather information and stories from as many young people and adults around the world as possible – channelling informed and interested voices from around the globe into one conversation.
We are all working towards a common goal: to ensure that every single young person has the opportunity to find their purpose, passion and place in the world. By gathering a rich tapestry of voices from across the world, we hope that we can start to paint a picture of young people, their challenges and opportunities and their untapped potential.
