What is #worldready?

Young people today face a wide range of challenges. At The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award, we want to play our part in helping young people to be ready for their world. Non-formal education and the development of skills such as resilience, confidence and communication can help to ensure every young person can say I AM #WORLDREADY.
