The World Bank Group Youth Summit takes place next week.

Launched in 2013, it exists to connect the World Bank Group with ideas and innovations from a younger generation. Previous editions have asked young pioneers to provide input on a range of hot topics, including climate change and rethinking education for the twenty first century. And the theme of the conversation this time is ‘Technology and Innovation for Impact’.

“The Youth Summit is an annual event that serves as a platform for conversation and action to make the World Bank Group more relevant to the global youth and to better involve young people in the work of the World Bank Group,” the event website says.

The 2017 Youth Summit will be held on December 4-5. Submit a question and be part of the conversation.

It will also be available to watch via live stream. Follow the debate on Twitter #wbgyouthsummit
