A historical look at the Y20 summit and how it began

Youth 20 (Y20) is the official youth engagement group of the G20, a forum of 19 countries and the European Union that come together to discuss, coordinate and cooperate on a range of economic and financial issues. The Y20 was established in 2011 as a way to give young people a greater voice in the G20 process and to involve them in the discussions and decisions that shape the global economy.

The Y20 operates under the umbrella of the G20, but it is independently run and organized by young people themselves. Each year, a different country is selected to host the Y20 summit and lead the organization, with the host country’s youth delegation serving as the chair of the Y20 for that year. The Y20 is made up of young people from the G20 countries and beyond, and its membership is drawn from a wide range of sectors, including business, civil society, academia and government.

The Y20 serves as a platform for young people to express their ideas, opinions and recommendations on G20 priorities, and it plays a key role in bringing the voices and perspectives of young people to the G20 process. The Y20 also serves as a networking and capacity-building platform for young people, providing them with the opportunity to learn from each other and develop their leadership and advocacy skills.

Since its inception, the Y20 has played a significant role in shaping the G20’s agenda and policy recommendations, and it has helped to raise the profile of youth issues on the global stage. The Y20 has also helped to foster greater collaboration and cooperation between young people from different countries and backgrounds, and it has played a key role in promoting youth empowerment and engagement around the world.
