In order to ensure a bright future for inclusive and sustainable development, it is vital to facilitate a close collaboration with today’s youth. It is the young generation’s creativity, innovation and dedication that our future will be built upon. Therefore, as part of UNIDO’s 50th Anniversary celebration, we are pleased to announce UNIDO’s two international Youth competitions: the Time Capsule Competition and the Research Paper Competition.
