Driven by their true desire to leave a legacy in terms of youth public policies, this 2018 Y20 is not only focused on the creation of an impactful policy recommendation paper that will contain the collective views of youth and will be handed to the G20 presidential Summit in November, but also is working towards making this Summit a turning point in the history of Y2O.
In line with our slogan “Shaking the Present, Building the Future” for the first time since its creation, the delegates will also be working to craft +10 projects that will constitute the cornerstone for the “Social Innovation Warehouse”, an international bank that will contain escalable and replicable projects and will serve as input for governments and organizations that want to implement youth public policies worldwide.
Y2O is also articulating with Japan and Saudi Arabia to build the first ever Y20 “Troika”, a landmark that will ensure the continuity of the work done by the delegates and by the organizing committee during the Summit in the mid to long terms.
“Youth does not have the potential to change the world, they already are doing it. This year, Y20 will show how necessary is for governments to involve youth into strategic and incidence spaces, to debate the Future of Work without taking into account the views of the people who will be the main focus of its effects, is like working blindfolded”
