The G20 Youth 20 Summit 2021 will take place ahead of the G20 Leaders Summit 2021, which is to be hosted by Italy in October 2021. Youth 20 (Y20) is one of the G20 Engagement Groups.
The 2021 G20, under the Italian Presidency, will focus on three broad, interconnected pillars of action: People, Planet, Prosperity. Within these pillars, the G20 aims to take the lead in ensuring a swift international response to the COVID-19 pandemic – able to provide equitable, worldwide access to diagnostics, therapeutics and vaccines – while building up resilience to future health-related shocks.
The Engagement Groups are independent collectives that are led by organizations from the host country. They work with other organizations from G20 countries to develop policy recommendations that are formally submitted to G20 leaders for consideration. The Y20 is aimed at enabling young people to express their visions and ideas to the Heads of State and Government of the G20. It is an inclusive discussion platform, from which a series of agreed recommendations related to the G20 agenda are compiled into a joint communiqué. This is then delivered to the Presidency and shared with the other Leaders.
The 2021 Y20 is chaired by the Young Ambassadors Society, the association in charge of the G7/G20 Youth Summits for Italy.
