“There is no cost for young people to participate and in return the adolescents and youth receive information and knowledge that helps create awareness about the topics being discussed.
Their voices will be incorporated within development debates and their responses and solutions will be taken from UNICEF to relevant government and civil society partners as advocacy messages for further action."
- Bertrand Bainvel, UNICEF Representative, Myanmar
The Social Innovation Lab has great potential in Myanmar, where almost half of the population is under 25 years old. “The Lab will help to connect young people, and encourage them to contribute to shaping the present and the future of their environment, society and country”, UNICEF Representative concludes.
