Program Highlights…

The G20 YEA holds an annual Summit prior to the official B20 and G20 Leader’s Summits. The G20 YEA Summit is a forum where young entrepreneurs, thought leaders and world-class entrepreneurship-focused organisations from around the world can meet with their peers, share best practices and develop recommendations to drive youth entrepreneurship in their respective countries. These recommendations are then put forward to leaders attending the B20 and G20 Summits and are actioned by the G20 YEA members in their respective countries.
