Generation17 Dialogue
Ending poverty, protecting the planet and building peace requires the determination and vision of young people. Young people take bold and innovative action towards progress on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The world needs their sense of urgency, determination and resilience.

It is against this background that the Generation17 Dialogue is being organized to bring together young people and development partners for joint action on the Global Goals and to recognize youth-led efforts towards innovative approaches to tackle the complex development challenges of today’s world. 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.

Generation17 is a 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.
