Call for Videos: World Bank #OurGreenerFuture Campaign 2021

Application Deadline: August 19th, 2021

During the past year, World Bank invited youth from around the world to tell their stories and ideas where decisions are made, the World Bank Spring, and Annual Meetings. Last fall we asked youth how could they participate in a resilient recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Their ideas were shared at the same level as John Kerry, U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate; Melinda Gates, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Director General, World Trade Organization; Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General at the World Health Organization; and many more high-level decision-makers! 

This fall is no different, if you are between 18 and 35 years old tell us in a 1-min video OR in a photo with text answering the following:

Identify 3 actions your country/community could take to build a greener, more inclusive future.
If you chose to submit a video, here are the requirements: 

  • The video must be no more than 1 minute long.
  • Record in a quiet place (no music or background noise)
  • Listen to your audio before you upload to make sure we can hear you.
  • If you’re inside a car, or if someone is helping you film,  or if you are in a noisy environment, holding the camera closer could help so the microphone picks up your voice instead of the environment.
  • Make sure the video is not shaky, the camera must be still while filming.
  • Do not edit or add captions, we will do it.

If you chose to submit a photo with text, here are the requirements:

  • Take a photo of yourself holding a sign with your three points written on a paper/cardboard. 
  • Make sure we can read the sign.
  • Include your three points in writing in your submission.
