GoalKeepers Youth Action Accelerator

About Goalkeepers Youth Action Accelerator

2019 is kicking off with an exciting, innovative, youth-led and multi-partner programme called the Goalkeepers Youth Action Accelerator!

is a multiyear campaign dedicated to accelerating progress towards the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals. Using powerful stories, data, and partnerships, Goalkeepers highlights progress achieved, holds governments accountable, and brings together a new generation of leaders to address the world’s major challenges. 

 The launch of the Goalkeepers Youth Action Accelerator is a direct response to the challenges young people face in accessing sufficient and appropriate resources to meaningfully engage in development decisions and activities that affect their communities.

The advocates

The Accelerator will support 26 promising youth advocates who are using data in innovative ways to address Global Goals 1-6 -- local development challenges related to poverty, hunger, health and well-being, education, gender equality and water and sanitation.
“The time is NOW. Let's scale up action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and drive positive change for young people across the world. If we are serious about achieving our global goals, this is the generation that is going to do it!”

Steering Committee

The Steering Committee is a team of youth ensuring constituency voice and representation and setting the strategic direction of the Accelerator.
