Jeanne Vigouroux, LP4Y Lab New York, United States
In October 2020, Life Project 4 Youth, as a foundation, was officially granted the special consultative status at the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). That was recognizing LP4Y as an expert, as a representative of the civil society in the UN, carrying the voices of Youth coming from extreme poverty and exclusion.
Holding this status enables us to participate in the 59th Commission for Social Development focusing on “Socially just transition towards sustainable development: the role of digital technologies on social development and well-being of all”, occurring online in February 2021.
85% of tomorrow's jobs do not exist today and the role of new technologies is an undeniable accelerator in the process of sustainable social and professional inclusion of Youth.
For the past 11 years, LP4Y has been preparing young adults for these future endeavors by integrating digital technology into its training programs and our organization has also developed several more in-depth projects, which targets the specific needs of the Youth and takes into account the use of technologies in their lives.
Therefore, LP4Y is organizing a side event to present and share :
Concrete solutions that use digital technologies as an inclusive tool to empower Youth living in extreme poverty
Some Stars and Youth will give testimonies, sharing their experience and the importance of digital in their professional inclusion. Our side event will highlight as well some of our latest practices and explain the various methods that foster Youth inclusion, with the participation of 360 Learning, General Electric, Techno India and Indian and Portuguese permanent missions to the United Nations. We will, among others, present the Digital Inc (for Inclusion) platform and the Digi Women initiative.
