Youth social entrepreneurship project empowering youth in Asia-Pacific to solve the region’s most pressing challenges. Co-led by UNDP & Citi Foundation.
In its inaugural year, Youth Co: Lab convened 11 national dialogues and social innovation challenges across Asia and the Pacific which culminated with a regional summit. The initiative has helped more than 1,700 young people develop their 21st-century skills, and it has launched or improved 140 social enterprises. The project has also established partnerships with over 80 key partners to strengthen the Youth Empowerment Alliance.
