I4A at the Annual Meetings 2015 in Lima, Peru
Ideas for Action launched a special program during the 2015 Annual Meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank Group in Lima, Peru, to promote the importance of involving youth in designing and implementing the newly adopted Sustainable Development Goals.
What is the Road to Lima program?
The agenda creates unique opportunities both for development and industry leaders to gain first-hand insights into fostering youth engagement and for young people from around the world to share innovative ideas with important decision makers in order to help shape the global development agenda. During its “Road to Lima” program, Ideas for Action has hosted two events in Lima. As part of the official Annual Meeting, the first event served to share insights into promoting youth engagement with World Bank officials, government representatives, and industry thought leaders from around the world. Subsequently, I4A, in partnership with San Ingnacio de Loyola University (USIL), hosted an in house and online Global Young Leaders Dialogue on financing the post-2015 development agenda. Individuals from around the world engage directly in the conversation to help us shape the next steps of Ideas for Action and its partnering youth initiatives from around the world.

We are seeking to spark a global conversation to allow youth from around the world to contribute innovative ideas and to directly engage with thought leaders from around the world.
