The Global Youth Forum of the World Bank is taking place right now, gathering more than 150 partners and representatives from the public and private sectors, civil society, and young people themselves. The Forum aims to move the youth agenda forward by building a sustainable Global Partnership for Youth in Development. It seeks to explore what works and what doesn’t—for whom, where and why—and how development can be more open to youth-driven ideas.
