MY SUMMIT is an extraordinary forum for young adults to participate and share their opinion on current global issues with the world’s top leaders.
Taking place alongside the upcoming G8 and G20 Summits in Muskoka, Ontario and Toronto, Canada from June 23rd to June 27th, MY SUMMIT comprises University level young adults between the ages of 18 and 24. The G20 youth delegates will have the opportunity to sit in, observe and “engage in discussions on economic themes and meet with senior officials, Ministers, Leaders and other dignitaries.”
In keeping with youth culture methods of communication, announcements were made on the Canada International Twitter account and Facebook from the U.S. Embassy-Ottawa.
Delegations of seven participants from each respected G8 and G20 country will participate in MY SUMMIT in addition to local students from Canada. Proposed delegates had to apply to participate by May 14th and top officials will select attendees.
Global Vision, based in Canada, is a not-for-profit organization that is sponsoring and helping to facilitate the delegates’ experience while at the G8 and G20 Summits.
