Abstract:

Youth engagement in global health is, more than ever, increasingly important. As the world becomes more connected, the perceived distance and proximity to people and animals around the world shrinks but as this happens the danger which we face from pandemic infectious disease, climate change, and food security grows, in a globalized world. Working in two student organizations, I am hugely lucky to meet some amazing colleagues who work at the highest levels of global public health, representing students and calling not only for leaders’ engagement with youth but also youth engagement with leaders. I hope to share some ideas for getting involved with this exciting field and how we, as students, can help change the world to be healthier, for people and animals.
