2016 has come to an end. It has been a fantastic and inspiring year, with #FirstGeneration initiatives around the world.

The UN has taken on the challenge to create a sustainable and fair future through 17 common goals – the Global Goals. We are the first and only generation that can achieve this task together. #FirstGeneration is an initiative to spread knowledge about the Global Goals and the importance of engaging young people. Involving young people in the Global Goals is crucial – they hold the key to the success of the 2030 Agenda.

We would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy #FirstGeneration Year! 2016 was only the beginning. Next year #FirstGeneration and the work towards achieving the Global Goals continues. We believe in the power of networks to achieve change. Together we have a unique opportunity to create a better, more sustainable future.
