GYS PostSummitReport

 

GYS 2019 Post Summit Report

The Global Youth Summit is a fully funded week of training, skills development, capacity building, interactive workshops and networking. The 2019 Summit, the eleventh to date, took place from 13 -19 July in Aarau, Switzerland under the theme of Solutions for Change.
At the summit, participants participated in and lead training sessions, networking and workshops to enhance their skills such as campaigning, fundraising, project management, leadership, public relations and pitching. The changemakers also had the opportunity to pitch their ideas to an enabling panel and are now eligible to apply for grant funding to scale existing initiatives or create new projects.

We select participants based on their track record of community action and their potential to further impact their communities. We look for the most inspiring, interesting, high potential, motivated and innovative young social entrepreneurs, community activists, volunteers and campaigners who are working towards attaining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) around the world.
After a successful reach with the call for applications, sixty-two young leaders representing 43 countries including Togo, Bhutan, South Sudan, Belarus, Pakistan, Lesotho, and Tunisia, were selected to attend. These young leaders were selected through a rigorous three rounds of selection from applications received from over 123 countries. They join the Global Changemakers network comprised of over 1200 young leaders from across the world whose work, to date, has impacted over four million people.

These were the numbers from our call for applications:

  • SOCIAL MEDIA
