The world now has its largest generation of youth in history. One person in five is between the ages of 15 and 24.

Youth people have ingenuity and creativity. They can change the world through the power of science, technology, and innovation.

With the social media, today's youth can shape their futures and ours in new, exciting ways.

The United Nations believes in investing in youth. Investing in youth will help us overcome challenges like poor education, and health care, high unemployment, violence against women and girls, and extremism. That is why I always urge leaders to reach out to young people and learn from them.

Help empower youth and help shape future innovators. Join me in supporting the UN Economic and Social Council on Thunderclap. Innovate Your Future.

Show your support on Thunderclap before 1 July 2013: https://www.thunderclap.it/InnovateYo...
