Y20 Community Launches with Dynamic Global Reunion ⌵︎

On Thursday, August 20, the Y20 Community officially launched with the Y20 Kickoff Anniversary Reunion. This virtual event gathered approximately 100 Y20 current and previous delegates and organizers to reconnect on the three key themes. The event began with welcome remarks from Y20 chair and featured distinguished speakers including Tatiana Podliszewski from Argentina, who served as Y20 2018 executive director, and Ahmad AlHendawi, the 10th secretary-general of the World Organization of the Scout Movement and the former United Nations Secretary General’s envoy on youth.

During her remarks, Tatiana Podliszewski shared the following reflection:

The Y20 provides a platform for young people to have their voices heard, making a meaningful and diverse contribution on issues relevant to the G20 agenda. Now, the Y20 Community amplifies that voice by connecting us as a growing global community of Y20 Alumni, actively bringing together youth across the world.

Additional Reunion activities included networking amongst the attendees and small group discussion on the three key themes. Thank you to all of the alumni delegates, organizers, and current delegates for joining us during the Kickoff Reunion.
