Young Thais join “UNICEF Next Gen” network committed to bringing positive change to children’s lives
UNICEF Thailand launched “UNICEF NextGen Thailand”, a new initiative bringing together networks of Thailand’s young generation who are passionate about making a sustainable impact to the lives of children in the country and across the world.
A UNICEF global initiative already implemented in a number of countries, UNICEF Next Generation (NextGen) is a group of young leaders, influencers, entrepreneurs and innovators in their 20s and 30s who commit their resources, resolve and enthusiasm towards supporting UNICEF’s life-saving and life-changing work for children.
In Thailand, the NextGen initiative is being launched with nine steering committee members or ‘champions’, who will mobilize their networks to support UNICEF in raising awareness about children’s issues in innovative ways. The members and their network will also carry out activities to promote the rights and well-being of children as well as raise funds for UNICEF’s programmes for children.
“The NextGen initiative comes at a time, when children and adolescents in Thailand face new challenges and we are all faced with the task to find new ways of tackling the issues that stand in the way of children reaching their fullest potential, especially the most vulnerable such as children and young people from migrant communities,” said Thomas Davin, UNICEF Representative for Thailand.
“Achieving results for children no longer depends on the government, NGOs, UNICEF or any organization alone. We must work more with groups of trendsetters, influencers and networks of young people like the UNICEF Next Gen, who share our passion for the cause, and who have the power to mobilize their voice and their network to speak out for disadvantaged children and help us find creative solutions so that we can truly achieve real change for them.” Davin added.
In Thailand, around 15 per cent of young people aged 15 – 24 years (about 1.3 million) are not in education, employment, or training, and two thirds of them are young women, according to 2017 labour statistics from the International Labour Organization. Without adequate investment in education and training, millions of young people will be unprepared and unskilled for the fast-changing environment – a serious threat to the country’s progress and stability.
