Global Youth Advancement Summit

2019 Global Youth Advancement Summit

The Global Youth Advancement Summit brings together up to 200 young leaders to address and develop innovative solutions to major challenges facing young people around the world. Focusing on the grand challenge of Global Inequity, delegates will exchange ideas, showcase innovative products and services, pitch their business ventures, and build genuine networks that will enable them to collaboratively define their future in a way that is equitable, just, and sustainable.

All youth delegates must receive a written acceptance of their proposal in order to attend the Summit. Proposals should demonstrate delegates’ contribution to solutions that reduce Global Inequities in one of the five key thematic areas: Arts and Culture, Education, the Environment, Healthcare, and Livelihoods (Employment and Entrepreneurship).
