About the UNICEF Youth Mediathon

In the wake of COVID-1​9, the UNICEF Youth Mediathon is a digital event organized by UNICEF to support young creators who believe in building a better world to advance their professional and personal growth. 

It is focused on helping content creators to share their vision with a bigger audience and improve their skills.

The Mediathon is an initiative launched off the realization that a lot of young people are uncertain about their next steps in life due to several factors such as disrupted schooling, increased anxiety, the challenges of finding their first job in a recession and standing up for racial justice. 

This initiative will be a medium for young Changemakers to tell leaders what change they want to see and help other young people understand and take action.
