Post Icon Apply: World Bank Group Youth Summit 2014

The World Bank Group is hosting its second annual Youth Summit on October 7, 2014, in partnership with the Office of the United Nations Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth. This year’s event will focus on increased youth engagement in issues relating to government transparency, accountability, and collaborative governance.
Increased government openness is crucial to earning back the trust of young people. Perceptions of corruption, inefficiencies, and bad management have resulted in a lack of trust in governments. With increasing inequality, unemployment, and lack of sustainable solutions, this perception is especially true amongst youth who feel their voices are often overlooked, disregarded or shut out of government decision-making processes. As those who have the most to lose by inheriting corrupt systems and non-open governments, young people have the incentive to create and seize the necessary tools to become actively engaged in government decision-making, which could result in greater transparency, accountability and better opportunities in their future. Around the world youth are standing up against corruption, demanding open governments, honest decision-making and active engagement.
With this in mind, the Youth Summit 2014 aims to convene young civil society and NGO leaders, students, government officials, technical experts and practitioners to focus on how we, the youth, can help governments become more open and responsive. The sub-themes of the Summit will focus specifically on transparency, accountability and collaboration, measures understood to end corruption and promote open and responsive governments.
To achieve this goal, the one-day Summit will be composed of high-level plenary discussions and targeted workshops. The Summit is envisioned to be engaging and innovative in leveraging the experience and expertise of participants, speakers, and workshop facilitators in an interactive setting. For this reason, this year’s Summit will crowdsource workshop session proposals whereby organizations from around the world working on governance, anti-corruption, and other related fields  are welcome to submit a proposal.
