Youth at Investment Case

Young people are taking the lead across the globe and the Investment Case is no exception.  We are inviting you to be a part of an exciting day of discussion and innovation at the World Bank facilities.

Are you a young entrepreneur, investor or student interested in sustainable finance?

Or are you passionate about reaching millions online through creative story telling?

Whatever your skill – speaking, investing, writing, digital media, and more – the Youth in Landscapes Initiative and the GLF want you to drive the discussion.

Applications are now closed but you can still take part online.



Who can apply?

We have no limitations, except for your age and energy. Applicants must be passionate, ready to learn and aged 18-35 years old. You do not have to be an expert to join the discussion – your interest and commitment to contribute to the experience is more than enough.


What do I need to apply?

  1. Resume/CV
  2. Answers to the following questions:
    1. Why the Investment Case? What is your connection to green finance, restoration, and the objective of the Investment Case? What is your motivation to attend?
    2. What is your project or great idea? If you don’t have one, just share why green finance and/or restoration is an important issue. (3-5 minute video submissions) [Optional]
  3. Any supporting material that tells your story (links to content, writing, social media, presentations, etc.) [Optional]

What will I be a part of?

We want to showcase you throughout the Investment Case in a variety of ways. Choose which one (or more) components you want to be a part of.

  1. Engagement (speaking, moderating, and facilitating)
  2. Digital Strategy (good storytellers, social media savvy, amplify the ‘online Edition’ of the Investment Case)
  3. Knowledge Sharing (capturing in-depth discussions + knowledge)

Selected delegates will be introduced to the GLF staff and receive online guidance before the day of the event.
