Podcast #93 – Power to Young Advocates
One quarter of the world’s population today is youth. Like never before, young people are using emerging technology and new media to voice their opinions, influence change and build the future they want. To celebrate International Youth Day, which is commemorated on 12 August, UNICEF’s Beyond School Books podcast series features a conversation between two young activists – Rodrigo Riaza, a Spanish Global Youth Ambassador for Education and the episode moderator, and Hannah Godefa, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. Rodrigo and Hannah discuss the importance of activism and the role of education in enabling young people to fulfill their potential.

The Guardian also posted an interesting reminder that childrens and young people’s voices are rarely heard in relation to climate change, yet they will be the most affected.
