Cisco Youth Leadership Award 2020

Cisco Youth Leadership Award is calling applications to recognize the World’s Most Inspiring Youth Leaders.

Cisco Youth Leadership Award was established by Cisco and Global Citizen to recognize and lift up a young person positively impacting the world, demonstrate the impact that young people are having on achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, and accelerate global problem-solving.

Global Citizen is an action platform dedicated to achieving the end of extreme poverty. By taking action with us, Global Citizens earn rewards, such as tickets to events and digital experiences with artists and influencers. Policy-makers make commitments to achieve the end of extreme poverty on their platform and they hold them accountable. So far, they’ve inspired 27 million actions, leading to $48.8 billion in commitments that have impacted 880 million lives so far. Together we can defeat poverty, defend the planet, and demand equality.
