About the YGL Youth Task Force

The Youth Task Force, an effort of the Young Global Leaders, proposes to launch a campaign to solicit feedback from young people around the globe. The focus will be to engage voices of children and youth under the age of 25 in order to provide input to the Global Redesign Initiative of the World Economic Forum. This feedback will take two forms: (a) town hall meetings in partnership with select universities and community partners around the globe with attendance open to young people who submit meaningful comments online (b) online through social media including video, live chats and discussion forums.
