The Co-Creation Challenge in Jordan 

The Generation Unlimited Co-Creation Challenge is supporting young people (14-24 years old) to identify, understand and solve challenges they and their peers face. This new challenge is focused on designing solutions for three global issues:

Secondary age education:

  • How might we build a system that encourages the continuation of schooling, particularly for the most marginalized?
  • How might we create incentives to encourage the number of adolescents (or girls or specific communities) to remain in secondary education?

Skills for learning, employability, and decent work:

  • How might we support young people to be prepared for the transition to, and navigation of, the labour market?
  • How might we create incentives for young women and men to enter job fields which are not traditional for their gender but are growing in value?

Empowerment, with a focus on girls:

  • How might we ensure the workplace and work environment is inclusive and accessible for all, including women with disabilities?
  • How might we reach equal rates of participation in the formal labour market for women and men?

As part of the global Co-Creation Challenge UNICEF Jordan is planning a number of activities, beginning in November 2018, to identify powerful ideas, from which the best five solutions will be chosen to represent Jordan in the global finals:

  • A number of Hackathons will take place in Ministry of Youth centres and Za’atari Refugee Camp to generate solutions for the co-creation Challenge.
  • 2 Ministry of Youth centres in the North and Middle of the country will take part in the challenge for a total of 200 young people across these centres.
  • In Za’atari Refugee Camp, the Humanitarian Changemakers Lab will enable 20 teams, involving 50-60 young people, to participate in the challenge.
