Innovating for children - Dreaming big for Children
This event seeks to engage between 25-40 participants1 and will provide an overview of UNICEF's
collaborative work with UDSM - CoICT on various innovation initiatives for children and women in
Tanzania. UNICEF supports the engagement and participation of young people through various
platforms including the Y4C hub at UDSM where strategic and innovative ideas are nurtured and
supported for the near future. UNICEF has further supported UDSM and other partners to roll out
the Generation Unlimited global dynamic partnership that draws on the expertise of young people,
representatives from governments, multilateral organizations, the private sector, and civil society
to inspire urgent investment in education, skills training, and empowerment for the rapidly growing
global population of adolescents and young people (10-24) estimated to reach 2 billion by 2030.
The event will also showcase the work of University students, young people engaged in
generation unlimited2 as well as other innovators who are contributing original and compelling
products and services for vulnerable children and women throughout the country.
