The blog has been up and going for a few weeks now, but it was only this week that the Youthink! blog officially went live. It's definitely worth checking out.

If you're reading this post, then the new World Bank blog platform at blogs.worldbank.org is live and open to the public.
Welcome to the World Bank Meetings Center!
This space provides links and inside access to the information, ideas, and issues being discussed at various events such as the IMF and World Bank spring and annual meetings.
Spring Meetings 2009
Each Spring, the IMF's International Monetary and Financial Committee and the joint World Bank-IMF Development Committee hold meetings to discuss progress on the work of the Fund and Bank.
We're launching this site a week before the Spring Meetings begin so that we can start providing you with some original content that will let you take a look at the important issues that are being discussed over the nex week. In the next few days, expect coverage of major Meetings-related events, photos and videos from the proceedings, and even various ways for you to get involved and have your say.
We're looking forward to an exciting few days ahead, and even more excited to be able to share these events with you.
If you've tried to leave a comment on this site or any World Bank blog, you may have noticed that we moderate comments here. We've decided to take that decision in order to help manage spam and other offending (slander, hate speech, etc.) comments, and not to stifle discussion.
Change is afoot at WorldBank.org, and we want you to know about what we're up to and help guide our thinking.
