About the Young Activists Summit

The Young Activists Summit seeks to change mindsets about global issues, advocate for change towards a better future, empower young figures defending sustainability or human rights, and help them achieve concrete results. Every year, the Summit’s key message and format are chosen based on the global context, as well as needs and opportunities arising. The Young Activists Summit is held annually and brings together a line-up of young activists who are awarded a prize for their outstanding dedication and achievements. The selected activists are thus provided with a unique platform to raise awareness of their causes among youngsters and decision-makers.
