GYM Final Report Launch – Unstoppable Together: Celebrating 2 Years of Youth-led Global Action
An estimated 1.2 billion young people have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic response measures. Disruptions to education, employment, health services and social support have changed the future of an entire generation. To address these challenges, the world’s largest Big Six youth organizations initiated the GYM to harness the surge of youth-led activism and action, creative solutions, passion, and commitment, by investing much needed funds at a grassroots level and advocating for the role of young people in COVID-19 recovery and response efforts.
Join us on 27 March 2023 as we launch our final report “Unstoppable Together: Celebrating 2 Years of Youth-led Global Action.”

Powering Change: Young People Leading the COVID-19 Response and Recovery
In February 2022, GYM launched a new impact report, “Powering Change: Young People Leading the COVID-19 Response and Recovery”, to highlight the reach and investment in young people globally to date.
The report, which includes case studies of global youth-led projects, highlights a series of policy recommendations for multinational agencies and institutions, governments, policymakers and corporations to address and prioritise the needs of young people and future generations.
