A key determinant of a country’s competitiveness is its human talent - the skills, knowledge, and experience of its population, better known as “human capital”. The agenda of this year’s Youth Summit will be structured around two main sub-themes, exploring how youth can maximize their, and other individuals’, human capital throughout their lifespan. The event is open for youth ages 18-35 so is applicable for both undergraduate and graduate students while also attracting many young professionals. We can also work with you to arrange a remote watch party as the event will be livestreamed.
