Our future agenda
In September 2021, the United Nations released a 52-page report on their vision for the new generation. The report covers topics like "The Right to learn" and "The Future of Work", as well as "Saving our planet". The role of young people is seen as "designers of their own future" and a ten point plan is suggested to rejuvenate the multilateral system.
The first two topics deal with an emergency program to catch up learning and reach children who are furthest behind, a blueprint to transform education systems to put learners at the center and give young people the skills they need for work and life. Furthermore, a world where we find secure and meaningful work, a global jobs strategy to put young people at the heart of the economic recovery and action to stimulate the industries of the future, support young entrepreneurs, and give young workers a fair deal.
This report is part of the UN "Common Agenda", wich contains recommendations across 4 broad areas for renewed solidarity between peoples and future generations, a new social contract anchored in human rights, better management of critical global commons, and global public goods that deliver equity and sustainability for all.
