We are a innovative youth-led​ think tank.

Youths are the key for the future; they will be ​the ones who will get the countless benefits ​and innovations made by the generations of ​the past and today.

Yet, they will also inherit the countless ​problems plaguing our world: climate change, ​inequalities, wars, to name just a few.

So, is the world ready to welcome the next ​generation? Our institute is here to answer ​that.

We advocate for youths to be valid​ stakeholders in politics.

We advocate for youths to be valid ​stakeholders in politics, recognizing their ​unique perspectives and essential ​contributions.

By championing policies and platforms that ​amplify youth voices, we strive to create an ​inclusive political landscape that values and ​empowers the next generation.

We engage with diverse policymakers and ​institutions, particularly the United Nations ​System to bring system-wide, institutional, and ​international stakeholder recognition of ​youths.

We conduct in-depth policy ​research to drive youth activism.

We are dedicated to empowering youth as ​essential stakeholders in the political arena.

Through rigorous policy research, we aim to ​drive youth activism and ensure that young ​voices are heard and respected.

We assist other youth organisations ​to engage with policymakers.

Driving meaningful change, especially in ​complex and large institutions like the United ​Nations as a youth organisation is hard.

We’re here to help youth organisations ​navigate the process of how they could engage ​with the UN, from ECOSOC Consultative ​Status to attending and speaking in UN ​conferences and forums.
