Y20 Community
Enjoy Summit Highlights and Talk Shows
RSVP for November 10 and see highlights from the Y20 Summit!
Hello 👋
We did it! Together, we amplified the voice of youth by making the Y20 Summit open to the world!

As a young person, I understand the value of being empowered. I had mentors who taught me the importance of mentoring others. So, when Othman shared the Y20 Community concept with me, I felt that this Community had vast potential to empower youth worldwide by amplifying their voices. The Community has a strong base to build upon, the Y20, an internationally recognized youth platform, with recurring engagements with world leaders. The Y20 Community can have a real and direct impact world wide. We can create lasting and sustainable impact. 
One of the Global Dialogue Fellows shared in a recent session, “This experience has been an incredible opportunity to maintain optimism, focus, and the spark to DO something for our communities during this time. It is greatly inspiring and helpful on personal and professional levels."

Yes! You all are a spark of inspiration. Thanks to your involvement, the Y20 Community has engaged more than 300 Y20 alumni and reached 7.5 million people from more than 100 countries through our virtual activities. Congratulations!

We invite you to join us to celebrate these achievements on November 10 during the Y20 Community: Rewind & Fast Forward! We will celebrate our achievements, plan for our future, and hear presentations from the Global Dialogue Fellows. RSVP at 

Thank you for being an inspiration. Thank you for being an active member of our Y20 Community.
