ITS Education Asia and UNITAR to Collaborate on Youth Ambassador Asia Pacific Programme


The United Nations Institute of Training and Research (UNITAR) and ITS Education Asia will jointly launch the UNITAR Youth Ambassador Asia Pacific Programme in Hong Kong and other cities in China. The 10-week programme empowers high school students to help our world build back better, greener, and stronger from the recent pandemic that swept the world. It trains the young people on sustainable development and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

 “Youth are the driving force of social development and how we act together to advance the SDGs now determines their future, not ours,” says Mr. Danny Harrington, Managing Director of ITS Education Asia. “We are grateful to UNITAR for recognizing our unwavering commitment towards education for sustainable development and the furtherment of global citizenship of young leaders in Hong Kong, China and across Asia Pacific.”

“Our engagement at UpLink, the World Economic Forum’s platform to crowdsource innovation to advance the SDGs, has highlighted that youth are raring to create systemic change,” says Mr. Kenneth Kwok, Founder and CEO of Global Citizen Capital and KIDsforSDGs. “This Youth Ambassador programme will be one where youth get to co-design the framework and co-curate the content for their future.”

“We are excited to collaborate with ITS Education Asia and to scale education in sustainable development through innovation,” says Ms. Mihoko Kumamoto, Director of UNITAR Division for Prosperity and Head of UNITAR Hiroshima Office. UNITAR runs various programmes to develop the capacity of young leaders across the globe.

The UNITAR Youth Ambassador Asia Pacific Programme will debut in Hong Kong in September 2021 with the support of 20 official school partners. It will be expanded to various cities in China in 2022, followed by other Asia-Pacific countries in 2023.
