The Youth Co:Lab positions young people front and centre in order to solve the region’s most pressing challenges. Co-created in 2017 by UNDP and Citi Foundation, the project aims to establish a common agenda for countries to empower and invest in youth, so that they can accelerate the implementation of the SDGs through leadership, social innovation and entrepreneurship. Youth Co:Lab is modelled on the ecosystem approach, actively collaborating with the government and the private sector to empower and engage youth across Asia and the Pacific.
