Young Bridge Builders: Solutions for a Divided World

Current events offer a daily reminder that the work of building bridges and breaking down barriers is needed now more than ever. What does it take to bridge divides and foster understanding in effective, lasting ways?  In this webinar, we turn to three unconventional experts — youth on the front lines of social change — who have navigated the challenges and opportunities inherent in building empathy and fostering social justice.
 Hear from successful young changemakers in India, Colombia, and Pakistan, as we explore:
• What systemic challenges stand in the way of bridging divides?
• Which models and approaches have shown promise and potential?
• What tips and advice would youth working on these issues give to policy makers, donors, and other development professionals?
