With half the world's population under the age of 30, global development, prosperity, and security are increasingly dependent on our collective ability -- across public and private sectors -- to capitalize on the productivity and potential of young people, and ensure they have a stake in building a more stable and prosperous world.

Please join us for this inaugural CSIS-IYF conversation where we discuss the opportunities and challenges of youth in the developing world.

If you cannot attend in person, you can follow the conversation live online and tweet your questions for the panel using #CSISyouth.
