Children and youth can be drivers of positive changes in attitudes and behaviour, and around the world young people are playing a crucial role in developing and implementing innovative, creative anti-corruption efforts. But to nurture this and effectively promote a culture of integrity and build a generation that stands for resilience to corruption, education is key.
To pursue this, UNODC’s new anti-corruption education and youth integrity initiative was launched today at a special high-level event held on the margins of the 9th Conference of the States Parties to the United Nations Convention against Corruption.
The Global Resource for Anti-Corruption Education and Youth Empowerment (GRACE) promotes a holistic approach to empowering the next generation to act with integrity and be less tolerant of corruption and unethical practices. It is a major step in UNODC’s work in engaging young people to be active problem-solvers in tackling corruption.
