About the Competition
During this pandemic, the remarkable creativity and innovation of youth-led initiatives in sectors like health, jobs, and food security are stories worth telling. These efforts prove that young people are critical in driving forward ideas and actions on global issues – and their voices deserve our attention.
The first round of the #YouthOnCOVID19 campaign heightened awareness of the challenges developing countries face in responding to COVID-19 and highlighted the specific obstacles facing young people.
This time around the WBG aims to give youth in developing countries a platform to be part of the recovery bringing their ideas to the stage where decisions are made, the World Bank/IMF Spring Meetings.
