Reason For The Initiative
In the wake of COVID-19, young people just like you feel they are no longer in control of their futures. From disrupted schooling to increased anxiety, to the challenges of finding their first job in a recession and standing up for racial justice, they are uncertain about their next steps in life.
But what if you could tell leaders what you wanted to see change, and help other young people understand and take action? That’s what the UNICEF Youth Mediathon is all about – to help young content creators like you reimagine a better world.
