About Leah's Participation at the Y20 Youth Summit
Leah attended Y20 Summit in Saudi Arabia in October 2020 as one of three Canadian delegates, covering Future Fit. Her Y20 public engagement activities were a talk show on entrepreneurship and a blog post, to be published on Young Diplomats of Canada.
From Leah's Blog:
“With COVID-19, many experiences are online, but what is it like participating in a virtual international delegation? How do you derive the most value from interactions over video calls, Google Drive, and Slack channels?
One year ago, I was selected as one of three Canadian representatives at the virtual Y20 Summit in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in October 2020. During the Y20 Summit, we negotiated on the future of work, youth empowerment, and global citizenship to produce a Y20 Communiqué that would advise the G20 deliberations later that year (white paper and COVID-19 statement). I led the negotiation on the future of work, leveraging my experience as the founder of Canduit, an ed-tech learning platform.”
