The World Bank Group is hosting its third annual Youth Summit, in partnership with the International Council of Small Business, The Climate Reality Project, and 1776. This year the event will focus on young people’s role in the fight against climate change. Given the risk that climate change poses for the long-term future and with the upcoming United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC COP 21), the Youth Summit Organizing Committee, with the support from the World Bank Group Climate Change CCSA, has called on young people from around the world to submit their innovative solutions on how to mainstream climate change. This two-day event will gather exceptional future and current leaders in the field of climate change to discuss the mission of the next generation. Further, the teams of the shortlisted proposals will have the opportunity to pitch their ideas in a live competition.
