News from Berlin - The 2014 edition of the G20 Youth Summit is about to take place in  Munich in a three-day event that will bring together students and young experts from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines. Held between May 7th and 11th, its main purpose is to promote dialogue and the exchange of ideas among potential future leaders on key socio-economic issues.

Participants will work under five committees to come up with solutions to the most pressing challenges currently being faced by young people: from food security, education and human rights to family issues, career opportunities and entrepreneurial climate. The outcome will be a final Communiqué that will be spread among G20 Heads of States as well as major international organisms such as the European Commission, the IMF and the World Bank.

Participants in the Summit will also have the chance to attend other more general activities organized as part of the broader 2014 Youth Forum, including workshops with experts and informal breakfasts with leading academics, businessmen and politicians. The G20 Youth Summit is organized by the ‘G8 & G20 Alumni Association’, an independent international NGO located in Geneva. The first edition of the event was held in Saint-Petersburg in 2006.
