“NextGen Accountability: Mobilizing a Youth Movement for Better Governance”
With Blair Glencorse, Nada Zohdy and Narayan Adhikari
The potential of young people to collectively improve governance outcomes around the world is huge. However, development-as-usual approaches are failing to engage this generation in meaningful processes of change. The Accountability Lab’s new strategy lays out a different path forward. It includes field-building efforts that mobilize popular culture to shift values, a focus on accountability agents rather than actions, and an emphasis on creating positive youth coalitions for reform.
Join us to hear from Blair Glencorse, Executive Director of the Accountability Lab, as he explains how the Lab is implementing this new strategy, the challenges an approach of this type involves and how youth-driven accountability efforts may evolve over time. He will be joined by Nada Zohdy and Narayan Adhikari who will provide country level perspective and feedback.
