Y20 Youth Summit is a 3-part, youth-led forum providing young people with a platform to discuss the most significant challenges that young people face today. The virtual summit will convene young leaders from G20 countries and give them the opportunity to develop their skills and network, as well as debate the G20 Leaders’ Agenda.

This year’s theme, as selected by the Saudi Arabian President, is ‘Realising Opportunities of the 21st Century For All’, with a particular focus on 3 key items: ‘Empowering People, by creating the conditions in which all people – especially women and youth – can live, work and thrive’; ‘Safeguarding the Planet, by fostering collective efforts to protect our global commons’; and ‘Shaping New Frontiers, by adopting long-term and bold strategies to share benefits of innovation and technological advancement’.
