UNDP Samoa Multi-Country Office (MCO) hosted the first ever Youth Co:Lab in Samoa.


This year, the theme for International Youth Day is “Safe Spaces for Youth”. This refers to civic spaces, physical public spaces and digital spaces.

Youth CoLab supports youth-led social innovation and entrepreneurship for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals while promoting the role of young people in their own social and economic self-actualisation.
