SEVENTEEN Commits $1 Million Donation as UNESCO Youth Ambassadors

SEVENTEEN has pledged a $1 million donation to UNESCO and launched a campaign to support youth initiatives. On June 26th (KST), SEVENTEEN visited the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, France, where they were appointed as UNESCO Goodwill Ambassadors for Youth and delivered a 10-minute acceptance speech.

Joshua, representing SEVENTEEN’s 13 members, shared their journey of learning and growth that led them to stand before the audience as youth ambassadors. Reflecting on their nine-year career, he noted that SEVENTEEN’s music has always conveyed the genuine experiences and emotions of its members during their youth.

SEVENTEEN has pledged a $1 million donation to support youth initiatives through the “Global Youth Grant Scheme.”

He emphasized that SEVENTEEN has communicated with their fans, known as “Carats,” through all stages of their youth, forming a strong bond and sense of belonging with the younger generation. The group’s experiences, Joshua said, embody the essence of youth, and they have developed a mission to represent and support the dreams of young people.

This mission has driven SEVENTEEN to begin their philanthropic efforts. Since 2017, they have donated funds to organizations focused on children’s welfare. In 2022, they collaborated with the Korean National Commission for UNESCO to launch the “Going Together” global campaign, aimed at promoting youth education.

Now, SEVENTEEN plans to elevate this campaign by partnering with UNESCO headquarters to launch the “Global Youth Grant Scheme,” supported by their $1 million donation. Joshua stated, “SEVENTEEN believes in the bright ideas and strong will of young people to create a better world. We pledge to support these ideas and provide funding.”

The group aims to inspire and support young people worldwide, emphasizing the importance of dreams and unity.

He encouraged youth to cherish their dreams and seek camaraderie, reassuring them that they are not alone. Borrowing lyrics from their hit song “Super,” Joshua expressed, “I love my team, I love my crew,” extending this sentiment to all young people, declaring them part of SEVENTEEN’s team and crew.

The event concluded with the members greeting the audience in various languages, including English, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese, with messages like “Your dreams are our dance,” “Your dreams are our motivation,” and “Your dreams are our future.”

Stay tuned for more updates on SEVENTEEN’s philanthropic efforts and their impact as UNESCO Youth Ambassadors.
