G7 and G20 Engagement Group


In collaboration with the Sherpa Office of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers and the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the Young Ambassadors Society (YAS) is now recruiting the delegates that in 2024 will join the Italian Delegation of the Youth 7 (Y7) and Youth 20 (Y20), the official engagement groups of the G7 and G20 for young people.

The Y20 and Y7 bring together under-30 international leaders, whose work lasts several months throughout the year and culminates in the Y20 and Y7 Summits where a Final Communique, containing proposals from the young delegates, is finalised and passed on to the Presidents and Heads of State.

As part of the Y7 Italy process, YAS is also proud to launch the official Global Youth Leader (GYL) program. The program is built with the contribution of YAS institutional and business partners, and it consists of a series of interactive learning sessions and hands-on policy making sessions where 100+ Italian and international under-35 leaders from around the world work together to create concrete policies to build a more inclusive and sustainable society.

In 2024, the Y7 Summit will take place in May in Italy, and the Y20 Summit will take place in Brazil and will focus on the following priority areas:

  • Environmental Sustainability and Climate Change
  • Inclusion and Equal Opportunities
  • Innovation and Digital Transformation
  • New Skills, Entrepreneurship, and the Future of Work

To apply to join the Y20/Y7 Italian delegation and the GYL program, among other criterias, candidates must be 18-30 years old (up to 35 for GYL program); be fluent in English; have volunteer, study, entrepreneurial, or work experience related to at least one of the priority areas; be passionate about the topics of discussion and willing to work in team in a multicultural environment; be able to commit to the work done before and after the Summit.
