Simple ways young people can fight corruption

Simple ways young people can fight corruption

Today is International Youth Day – a day marking the many ways that young people can transform their societies.

Transparency International believes that today’s youth are the future leaders of the fight against corruption. Young people who promote integrity also promote a better future for everyone.

We put together a simple guide on ways young people can get involved in the fight against corruption – from using tech tools and theatre performances, to organising petitions, protests and integrity camps.

Have a look at our toolkit and see what might work in your community.

 

 

These short videos show some of the ideas in action.
