We are 1.8 Billion!

Demand action and accountability for our health and well-being.
The world has more young people today than at any time in history.
Yet in many countries, government spending on our health and well-being is far too low.
The 1.8 Billion Young People for Change campaign aims to change that. This advocacy campaign for adolescent well-being (AWB) will build demand for adolescent and youth issues, leading up to the UN Summit of the Future in 2024. The Global Forum for Adolescents, held on 11-12 October 2023, was a major moment in that effort.
What Young People Want
Over ONE MILLION youth & adolescents have voiced their demands & dreams!
