Young Global Leaders Annual Summit

30 Jun–3 July 2019 Dalian, People's Republic of China

Gathering in Dalian for its 16th Annual Summit, the Forum of Young Global Leaders will bring together inspirational and pioneering leaders from around the world to connect with one another, reflect on new insight and affect the complex world around them.

We live in an era when people and ideas sometimes move faster than thinking and values evolve. We observe reaction without contemplation and growing divides. Citizens are negotiating new social contracts with implications on long-standing geopolitical and economic structures. We are entering a new phase – Globalization 4.0.

Leading during times of significant geopolitical, economic and environmental transformation requires a collaborative approach. Flourishing communities depend on the active contributions of all parts of society. How do we develop our individual and collective strengths to achieve the future we want?

Join us for two days in the People’s Republic of China for an immersive leadership development experience. (Re)discover China as we reflect on what this fast-growing economic power can teach us about leadership, navigating shifting priorities and cultivating resilience. Draw inspiration from our environment and fellow YGLs to ground our individual and shared responsibility to positively shape the world.

Additional YGL sessions occur throughout the Annual Meeting of the New Champions (1-3 July, Dalian), including interactions with key Chinese leaders and opportunities for community-building.
