Future leaders needed to tell the story of climate change
The World Bank Youth Summit 2015 will take place from 16-17 November in Washington DC with the theme, Crowd-Sourcing Solutions for Climate Change.
It will feature a live competition in which selected young professionals will present business or policy proposals on innovative ideas on how to mainstream climate change and achieve development needs in a specific World Bank Group client country.
Participants must submit proposals that provide business or policy level ideas (or a combination of both) on how to tackle climate change impacts and achieve development needs in a specific country.
Submissions are due 3 October 2015.
The summit is expected to gather exceptional future leaders (aged 18 to 35 years) to tell the story of climate change and inspire communities everywhere to take action.
