The World Bank Youth Summit 2015 will be held from November 16-17, 2015 in Washington, DC, USA on the theme of ‘Crowd-Sourcing Solutions for Climate Change.’ The Summit invites young people from around the world to use their knowledge and creativity to crowdsource solutions for climate change that contribute to growth and development in developing and emerging countries.
This is an opportunity for young professionals to present their creative solutions, and spark a global dialogue on innovative ways to address the reality of climate change impacts.
The aim of the Youth Summit is to provide a platform for young people to act as change makers and help solve one of the world’s most complex challenges. The Youth Summit 2015 will feature a live competition in which selected young professionals will present their final competition proposals in front of a jury.
