#YouthDialogues - The Future of Development

October 2, 2015 | 20:30pm

Young people today globally are both partners and stakeholders in efforts to foster dialogue and mobilize communities. Their meaningful participation is essential in order to reach the global development goals as well as the World Bank Group’s twin-goals - ending extreme poverty by 2030 and boosting shared prosperity for the bottom  40 percent of populations.

The World Bank Group’s Youth2Youth (Y2Y) and the President’s Office are jointly sponsoring an event at the World Bank Group’s main building that brings together  young entrepreneurs, visionaries and innovators in international development. They will discuss  the global economy, policies to reduce poverty and promote inclusive economic growth, and preview next week’s Annual Meetings of the World Bank Group and the IMF. The event looks at the world’s pressing challenges – and  how development professionals can make a difference.

Join us for an interactive pre-World Bank Group Annual Meetings 2015 event with President Jim Yong Kim of the World Bank Group and other global leaders for a discussion on the most important development issues in the world today.
