Objectives of the WTO Youth Ambassador Programme
The WTO Youth Ambassador Programme aims to raise awareness of international economic governance issues among young people, encourage their engagement in public policy discussions, and bring new perspectives to the debates. Its starting point is a contest. To participate, contestants must provide their response to a trade-related question. Submissions can be made in the form either of a video or an essay.
