GoalKeepers Youth Action Accelerator

About GoalKeepers Youth Action Accelerator

2019 is kicking off with an exciting, innovative, youth-led and multi-partner programme called the Goalkeepers Youth Action Accelerator! The launch of the Accelerator is a direct response to the challenges young people face in accessing sufficient and appropriate resources to meaningfully engage in development decisions and activities that affect their communities.

The Accelerator will support promising youth advocates who are using data in innovative ways to address Global Goals 1-6 -- local development challenges related to poverty, hunger, health and well-being, education, gender equality and water and sanitation.




Thank you for all those that have applied! Organisers and a youth panel are reviewing project proposals from around the world. The applications range from citizen generated data to monitor the Sustainble Development Goals to innovative methods that scale youth representation in decission-making processes.

For more background and next steps on this programme, check the timeline,

“The time is NOW. Let's scale up action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and drive positive change for young people across the world. If we are serious about achieving our global goals, this is the generation that is going to do it!”
