The reason UNESCO headquarters invited SEVENTEEN was because they were recognized for everything from album sales to their sincerity in spreading positive messages through music.

However, achieving only numerical results does not mean one can represent the young generation. SEVENTEEN left behind more value than just grades through its music. Seventeen, which debuted in 2015 with an average member age of 17, has been making music by honestly expressing the anxieties and hopes they feel as they transition from their teens to their twenties.

Starting with fresh emotions, the passion and will to move forward, and the confused emotions of youth and inner insight captured in between were told numerous stories became SEVENTEEN’s unique narrative. UNESCO recognized the cultural, artistic, and social influence that SEVENTEEN has created through growth narratives, considered them as suitable figures to represent and voice the youth generation and global issues, and selected them as speakers.
