About this episode

Senior global leaders have taken different steps to try and control the coronavirus pandemic, but according to Kate and Ella Robertson, it is the world’s young leaders who are stepping up and making the real difference. In this episode of Change Makers, the co-founder and managing director of the global forum for young leaders One Young World argue that young people are the ones driving the solutions to global issues including the current crisis, and now is the time to recognise them for it.
