About

Global Youth Mobilization is a movement of young people taking action to improve their lives now and in a post-COVID-19 world.

Supported by the world’s largest global youth organisations, World Health Organization, and United Nations Foundation, the Global Youth Mobilization aims to address the negative impact of the pandemic on young people and support them to build back better. 

There are an estimated 1.2 billion young people impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic response measures. Disruptions to education, employment, services and social support have changed the future of an entire generation. A generation disrupted.

It is more important than ever that governments, policy makers, academics, business leaders and civil society come together to find innovative ways of supporting communities and providing hope to younger generations. Join the mobilization today.
