World Bank Group Youth Summit 2014: The Need for Open & Responsive Governments
October 7, 2014
World Bank Group Headquarters
Open: The World Bank Group Youth Summit 2014 is open to everyone who are interested in the 2014 theme of Open & Responsive Governments.
The Youth Summit 2014 aims to convene young civil society and NGO leaders, students, government officials, technical experts and practitioners to focus on how we, the youth, can help governments become more open and responsive. The sub-themes of the Summit will focus specifically on transparency, accountability and collaboration, measures understood to end corruption and promote open and responsive governments.
To achieve this goal, the one-day Summit will be composed of high-level plenary discussions and targeted workshops. The Summit is envisioned to be engaging and innovative in leveraging the experience and expertise of participants, speakers, and workshop facilitators in an interactive setting. For this reason, this year’s Summit will crowdsource workshop session proposals whereby organizations from around the world working on governance, anti-corruption, and other related fields are welcome to submit a proposal.
