Global Youth Anti-Corruption Forum

They have a voice and they are raising it, as a citizen voice and as a singing voice. The Global Youth Anti-Corruption Forum built on a year-long effort to support a network of youth groups working on Governance and Anti-Corruption issues. The youth groups were selected through a global competition organized by the Global Youth Anti-Corruption Network (GYAC).

The Forum gave young civil society leaders, musicians, and journalists - many of whom come from fragile states - a space to exchange their experiences with fighting corruption through reforms.

The World Bank Institute is helping the GYAC strengthen its capacity, including through south-south exchange. In addition, in Zambia, WBI has mounted its first "mobile GDLN Center" in Africa, connecting to the Forum in Brussels from a conference complex in Lusaka where another GDLN event on ICTs in Education is taking place.
