Episode Description

Supported by the World Health Organization, the United Nations Foundation and the big 6 youth organizations, Global Youth Mobilization is a movement of young people taking action to improve their lives in a post COVID-19 world. To date this initiative has funded 134 local solutions and 74 national projects in over 100 countries worldwide. In this final podcast of our popular SHINE series, Planet Classroom is proud to introduce you to 6 of the young Awardees from these projects doing critical work to address the negative impact of the pandemic and build back better. Get the inside scoop on how these social impact entrepreneurs are tackling the challenges on mental and physical health, the digital divide, education disruption and poverty in their local communities. Hopefully this podcast will influence you to get up and join them!
