The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Samsung Mobile are thrilled to announce the expansion of Generation17 – a joint initiative aimed at empowering young changemakers to achieve the Global Goals.

If you are the leader of a Global Goals-focused initiative and are interested in being part of the next community of Generation17 Young Leaders, please apply by 7 May 2023 12:00 AM EST.

If you’re selected, you’ll have the opportunity to network and engage with a group of inspiring young leaders who are advocating for meaningful change. UNDP and Samsung Mobile will open access to their technology, knowledge, and global platforms to enable your success and scale the impact and visibility of your work.


In 2020, UNDP and Samsung Mobile created Generation17 – an initiative that elevates the voices of young leaders while providing the resources that they need to overcome barriers to progress. Since 2020, UNDP and Samsung Mobile have gathered 14 young leaders across six regions who are working on issues that touch all 17 of the Global Goals. With this open call for applications, UNDP and Samsung Mobile look forward to increasing Generation17’s impact and empowering even more communities to take concrete action for the Goals.
