The case challenge’s collaborative element is an essential part of the 2021 WBG Youth Summit on Resilient Recovery for People and Planet, with a vision for fostering an environment of belonging and increase engagement between participants, the WBG and the facilitators.
Over the course of the Summit, selected participants will gain real time experience in a team-based, simulated scenario identifying key challenges and opportunities in the development of solutions for a resilient recovery for the people and the planet.
