About the ‘Youth 7 Summit’
The Y7 is the official youth engagement group for the G7, the forum for the seven most advanced economies in the world. The purpose of the youth engagement group is to highlight the most pressing issues affecting young people, to connect with young leaders across the world to solicit their solutions to tackle these challenges and to advocate to international leaders for change. As the Canadian Head Delegate, I led our delegation in this global forum through which we acted as the official national voice of Canada’s youth during the summit. The output of the summit is a communiqué which is presented world leaders as part of the official G7 summit and various presentations made to G7 Sherpas, Sous-Sherpas and Ministers across the G7.
