A platform for the voice of the young generation, it ensures that their policy recommendations and proposed solutions are incorporated into multilateral cooperation under the G7. Young delegates from 11 countries began debating a number of priority themes and drawing up recommendations in March.

All of the decisions taken by the G7 touch upon what kind of a world we will be living in tomorrow. On this, we need to hear the voice of the young generation loud and clear. I am impressed to see the level of commitment displayed during the Youth7 process! Thank you.”
