Pathways Commission Partners with U-Report
Pathway for Prosperity partnered with the U-Report social platform to give young people in developing nations the opportunity to influence change and impact the Commission’s reports.
The two reports, which will explore the themes of technological access and usage and how these can affect economic growth, will launch in early October prior to the World Bank/IMF annual meetings. We will be using the results in conjunction with analysis from UNICEF’s yearly flagship publication - State of the World’s Children.
U-Report is a free and anonymous social platform, developed by UNICEF, which gives young people’s voices power. Their opinions and their solutions to social issues which they confront in their daily lives can influence key decision makers, from private companies to governments. They can interact with U-Report via Facebook, Twitter, and for those who don’t have access to the internet – by text message.
