Young people around the world are set to inherit an array of intractable challenges from climate change to growing inequality. Likewise, they are losing faith in democracy’s ability to deliver. This panel brings together young democratic leaders from around the world to explore what can be done to nurture and secure the right to meaningful youth political participation and inspire a new generation of democracy champions.
