g7g20 youth japan
Y7 Summit and Y20 Summit (hereafter referred to as Y7 & Y20 Summits) are international conferences for youth leaders representing their own countries. As the official engagement group of G7 and G20 Summits, Y7 & Y20 Summits are held annually, hosted or supported by the host country of G7 and G20 Summit. Youth under 40 from a diverse background, such as researchers, government officials, and students, will convene ahead of G7 and G20 Summits and make policy recommendations by submitting the communique to G7 and G20. Y7 & Y20 Summits aim to propose solutions to various challenges faced by today’s international community by promoting mutual understanding among youth at the forefront of the world.
Y7 & Y20 Summits are regarded as a precious opportunity to reflect youth’s ideas to G7 and G20. Communiques adopted at Y7 & Y20 Summits are sometimes directly noted at G7 and G20 discussion, and youth delegates have the chance to meet top leaders from the host country.
