The theme of the 2023 WBG Youth Summit Pitch Competition is “The Importance of Youth-Led Solutions to Drive Global Impact”.

In line with the 2023 Summit’s theme, submissions are welcome from all individuals and/or teams (age 18-35) that address at least one of the three pillars of development goals:
(a) Fragility, conflict, and violence affected locations;
(b) Climate change, including energy security and transition;
(c) Financial security through employment and skill development.

In addition to these core themes, cross-cutting solutions that address the needs of indigenous peoples, marginalized communities, rural women, and other vulnerable groups facing local challenges are also encouraged.
