"If more than half the world’s population is made up of youth under the age of 30 and half of the world lives in cities, then why aren’t cities and youth doing more to design and build better cities? What can be done to change this?"

When I was a kid, my dad used to tell me stories. One of those stories affected me deeply. I wrote about that on World Bank's blog: http://wrld.bg/rGFBp

Introduction

Ravi Kumar is an entrepreneur, digital communicator and youth advocate. He believes that technology and media have the power to create social change in developing countries, and has worked to make that happen in his home country of Nepal.

He used the Internet for the first time in 2006, and now manages YouThink!, the World Bank’s online space for youth to learn and discuss development topics in six languages.

During the day, he also serves as Online and Social Media Associate at the World Bank, where he co-manages the World Bank’s corporate social media channels and creates data visualizations for the World Bank Tumblr. At night, he volunteers as co-manager of the Youth Innovation Fund at the World Bank.

In November 2013, he was a visiting Digital Media lecturer and Academic and Cultural Series Speaker at Buena Vista University, his alma mater, where he earned a BA in 2010. In 2013, he also served as a Public Policy Fellow at the Fund for American Studies.

He has a Masters of Science degree from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. At Columbia, he specialized in digital media and was a fellow at the Toni Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism. As a graduate student at Columbia, he volunteered as a webmaster for the Society of Professional Journalists, and served on The Earth Institute Student Advisory Council.

He is a blogger at the Huffington Post. He has written on topics such as education, innovation, technology and youth. In July 2012, Global Post published his master’s thesis, an investigative story about Nepalis who use existing human smuggling networks in Central America to illegally enter the U.S.
