Mobile technology is growing in around the world. In fact, by early 2015 the number of mobile connections will surpass the world’s population. Public and private innovators are leveraging this near ubiquity of mobile technology to address youth employment issues. By providing services to match labor supply and demand, these pioneers are helping to bridge some of these gaps.
The event will feature a brief presentation of key findings from NDI’s study, followed by a panel discussion on how technology is affecting citizen participation in emerging democracies.
