We are happy to announce the new composition of the OECD's Youth Advisory Board for 2022 after a very difficult selection: 24 brilliant young people aged 18‒30 from 25 countries.
Youthwise was launched in 2021 to bring youth perspectives and ideas to the OECD, and improve youth understanding of the Organisation’s work and international policy making.
They will focus this year on how we can build an inclusive and green future for & with young people, in line with the OECD’s policy priorities.
|Young people are our leaders of tomorrow. They will drive forward efforts to create a more prosperous, more equitable and more resilient future.
Yet it is the young that have been among the hardest hit by the economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Investing in skills, education, quality jobs and mental health will help them rejuvenate their educational and career prospects, empowering them to face the future with confidence – and become the best they can be.
To help today’s youth get through this crisis and prepare for the post-COVID world businesses of all sizes must rally round. Supporting the youth represents an opportunity – perhaps the best opportunity – that any business has to bounce back better and be fit for the post-COVID world.
