II Edición GYLF 2017

La Segunda Edición del Global Youth Leadership Forum se celebrará del 24 al 30 de septiembre de 2017 en el Palacio de la Magdalena de Santander (España).

Impulsado por Naciones Unidas (a través de la Oficina de Naciones Unidas Contra la Droga y el Delito), el Banco Mundial y los Gobiernos de España, Santander y Cantabria, numerosos gobiernos, organismos internacionales, empresas y universidades de primer nivel se han sumado en la promoción del primer foro mundial de debate intergeneracional para el análisis de los principales retos que afrontará la Comunidad Internacional en los próximos años.

A lo largo de siete días, 200 jóvenes líderes (menores de 40 años) con importantes responsabilidades en sus países, convivirán y debatirán con las principales figuras mundiales del ámbito político, económico, social y académico sobre los desafíos que, como sociedad, afrontaremos en los próximos años.

Por ello, y convencidos de la enorme potencialidad que tiene este nuevo escenario para la mejora de las condiciones de vida de nuestros conciudadanos, hemos creado el Global Youth Leadership Forum (GYLF), espacio que pretende convertirse en centro de debate y discusión entre los principales actores internacionales (Gobiernos, Organismos Internacionales, Empresas, Universidades…) y jóvenes líderes que ya ostentan importantes responsabilidades en sus países y tratan de buscar las mejores soluciones para la Comunidad Internacional.

Geopolítica, seguridad nacional e internacional, comercio y desarrollo económico, la importancia de la internacionalización desde la óptica regional y local, el empleo juvenil, la educación, el comercio internacional, el rol de los organismos internacionales, mercados energéticos y desarrollo sostenible, desarrollo regional, el papel de los emprendedores, el liderazgo de la mujer en el nuevo contexto global o la importancia de las empresas en la contribución al bienestar de nuestras naciones serán analizadas para tratar de armar un cuerpo de propuestas que contribuyan a la gobernanza y desarrollo de nuestras naciones.
