The Young Global Leaders and Alumni Annual Summit, the main gathering of this community, is taking place this year in Tokyo, Japan, on 18-20 October 2016. The summit will explore the YGL community's three objectives – Community, Leadership and Impact – through a series of discussions that will draw on the context of Japan.

In Tokyo, we will also participate in the World Forum on Sport and Culture meeting; a global gathering of cultural, sports, business, media and policy leaders hosted by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan, October 20-21.
