Young people between the ages of 10-24 should be central actors in shaping the world they live in. They are  early adopters of new digital applications, and could use them to address their health and wellbeing, increasing their resilience.

Youth are living on the cusp of the fourth industrial revolution, and will be living in societies driven by algorithms, the internet of things, and fueled by data. It is our responsibility to ensure that digital solutions can transform cities into healthy and safe environments where young people can thrive.

10 Million CHF Grant Funding for Youth Technology
