About the Y20
Created in 2010 under the Canadian G20 presidency, the Youth 20, also known as Y20, brings together young leaders from all G20 member countries, with a view to helping them develop skills to identify the most pressing economic challenges and opportunities for young people across the world.
It is a forum for the cooperation of future generations and provides a platform for young people to share their voices and interests with the G20.
