Several case studies and interviews appear in the report to develop the appropriate skills for green jobs and daily sustainable actions. 

GEO-6 for Youth is a one-stop-shop for a young person to understand the state of the environment, what they can do every day to drive markets to adopt environmentally sustainable products and services and how to develop their skills and choose environmentally sustainable careers. 

The report provides background to help understand the issues, but most importantly shows how youth have the power to bring about transformative change for the environment. 

GEO-6 for Youth is UNEP’s first fully interactive e-publication and provides multimedia content and interactive features to inform, engage, educate, and lead to youth action. According to UNEP, several case studies and interviews appear in the report, including small-scale, community-led projects and individual guides, to develop the appropriate skills for green jobs and daily sustainable actions. 

A gender and geographically balanced team of 28 young authors from across the world worked on the report using the GEO’s co-creation model. The report aims to:

  • Translate high-level, scientific messages on the state of the environment for a youth audience (ages 15 to 24),
  • Define how youth can bring about transformational change by creating and accessing environmentally sustainable jobs,
  • Identify daily sustainability actions that can change market dynamics to achieve an environmentally sustainable world by 2050.
