The Millennial Challenge | World Economic Forum - The Millennial Challenge Citing a “mismatch” between high youth unemployment across the globe and the dearth of qualified workers for many companies, corporate and civil society leaders at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2014 called for a collaborative approach to seize the opportunity inherent in the problem. In the presence of members of the Forum’s Global Shapers community – a worldwide network of socially engaged young people – leaders urged further incubation of creative ideas to train and invest in the 50% of the global population under the age of 27. The potential upside of better incorporating youth into the economy is enormous, said Robert Greenhill, Managing Director, World Economic Forum. For every percentage point increase in youth unemployment, US$ 72 billion is added to global consumption. “We’re trying to bring more entrepreneurs to the table,” said Maria Fanjul, Chief Executive Officer,, Spain, and a Global Shaper, “to encourage young people to be owners of their lives”.
