Global Youth Mobilization is a movement of young people taking action to improve their lives now and in a post-COVID-19 world. Supported by the world’s largest global youth organizations, World Health Organization, and United Nations Foundation, Global Youth Mobilization aims to address the negative impact of the pandemic on young people and support them to build back better. With support from the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, Global Youth Mobilization will support and scale-up youth-led solutions and youth engagement programs across the world. Any young person between the ages of 14 – 30 can apply.
Applications for funding must be inclusive and from an individual young person, an informal group of young people or a local / grassroots youth-led organization (including local chapters / organizations of the bigsix.org).
To be successful, applications must be innovative and address the negative impacts of COVID-19 and related societal challenges and be aligned with the WHO’s recommendations on COVID-19 public health measures.
