During this pandemic, the remarkable creativity and innovation of youth-led initiatives in sectors like health, jobs, and food security are stories worth telling. These efforts prove that young people are critical in driving forward ideas and actions on global issues - and their voices deserve our attention.
Our first round of the #YouthOnCOVID19 campaign heightened awareness of the challenges developing countries face in responding to COVID-19 and highlighted the specific obstacles facing young people.
You can watch some of these remarkable youth here.
