Today’s youth have come of age in an environment of unprecedented potential for empowerment: they live in an interconnected world transformed by technological advances. This young generation is the most populous the world has ever known. Six out of every ten youth in the world are found in Asia-Pacific – equivalent to 700 million young people in 2015, investing in youth is therefore paramount. In many countries, young people are also active in the public sphere, contributing to their communities in innovative ways, taking part in public debates and discussions, establishing social enterprises and claiming a space as stakeholders in the development process that affect them, their communities, and their countries.
At the same time, approximately 300 million young people are either unemployed or underemployed. In other words, nearly half of the 700 million young people in the region face economic insecurity. In addition, many young people are left out of decision-making processes, which contributes to their marginalization and exclusion.
Therefore, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) at the Bangkok Regional Hub, has launched the Regional Youth Project on Leadership, Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The project will focus on establishing a network to foster youth-led social entrepreneurship, support youth leadership initiatives, and provide grants for incubation financial mechanisms to fud youth-led programmes aimed at achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The project will also support research and knowledge exchange activities to inform current and new youth initiatives.
