Generation17 is an initiative from Samsung and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) that elevates the voices of young leaders who are changing the world and contributing to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or ‘Global Goals.’ Samsung and UNDP are providing mentorship, technology, and networking opportunities for the young leaders as they advance their work

The Dialogue will spotlight examples of how – at this very moment and across the globe – young people and their organizations are taking action for sustainable development and leveraging technology and innovation.

These young leaders are a part of the Generation17 partnership by Samsung and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), which supports a group of inspiring young leaders – ages 18 to 32 – dedicated to innovating for humanity and mobilizing global communities.

The Generation17 Dialogue is an opportunity for young people and their organizations, networks, movements to connect, including with development partners. The Dialogue includes interactive sessions and panel sessions with speakers such as the Generation17 young leaders and UNDP’s Deputy Director of the Bureau for External Relations and Advocacy, Mr. Walid Badawi.
