Welcome to the new blog for Youthink! -- where youth from around the world can share ideas and stories on global development.
As you can see, we’ve made some changes from the previous Youthink! site. With our new blog home, we hope to increase engagement with you and make it easier than ever to share ideas and learn about development.
We want to amplify the perse voices of young people in developing countries and beyond, and connect them to experts who can benefit from their views.
So what can you expect? A place to find smart, compelling blog posts, events, photos, videos, chats and resources on how young people are making a difference in their communities and on the issues shaping their role in development. Plus, our blog is multilingual - we will be engaging with you in English, French and Spanish.
We’ll also have a new home for our popular issue “explainers” and our teacher resources.
As our blog expands, we’ll be looking to tap into our network of guest bloggers from around the world and encouraging you to provide us feedback along the way. A big thanks to all of you who have contributed blog posts in the past.
So let’s get started. Tweet us @wbyouthink or join us on Facebook in English, French or Spanish. Send us your blog ideas and subscribe to our newsletter to get new posts directly in your inbox. You can also send us a message by using the contact form.
Our goal via this blog is to connect with you, help you find solutions to the challenges facing your world, and add your voice to the fight against poverty.
