Kahoot! and the United Nations launch games to engage youth in the global dialogue on shaping the future

UN 75 logoKahoot!’s collaboration with the UN aims to engage young people across the globe on what the world should look like in 25 years.

In 2020, the United Nations is marking its 75th anniversary. In commemoration of this date and with its goal of building a better future for all, the United Nations launched a global dialogue initiative in January.

This initiative covers a range of important global issues — including the climate, inequality, forms of conflict and the rapid changes in digital technologies and demographics.

Kahoot! is collaborating with the UN75 team to reach the youth audience and drive engagement with a series of kahoot games on these global issues. These include global health challenges and crises such as the current coronavirus pandemic, a growing and aging world population, global trends in violence and conflict resolution, and the challenges and opportunities of modern technology and growing inequality.

Kahoot! CEO Eilert Hanoa said:

-Kahoot! is extremely proud to collaborate with the United Nations on this important cross-border initiative. Our hope is that the Kahoot! games made with the United Nations inspire student reflection on some of the world’s most challenging issues—planting seeds for future collaboration and positive global change.”

Fabrizio Hochschild, Special Advisor to the Secretary General for the commemoration of United Nations 75th anniversary said:

“The UN75 wants to hear from young people in particular as they will inherit the global challenges that our generation has not solved. The UN75 Kahoot! games are a great tool to engage young people and, at the same time, educate them about international cooperation. We are thankful to Kahoot! for its collaboration and support to the UN75 dialogue.”
