Over the last 10 years, the Forum of Young Global Leaders has endeavoured to build the foremost platform for young leaders to engage in global affairs to shape a more positive, peaceful and prosperous society. The community is made up of the world’s most outstanding next-generation leaders. Bold, brave, action-oriented and entrepreneurial, these individuals commit both their time and talent to make the world a better place.
Each year, we select the very best candidates from thousands of nominations worldwide to join the community. This year’s class of Young Global Leaders (YGLs) come from 66 countries and equally represent the public and private sector. Out of 187 YGLs honoured, half are women.
