Meeting and networking with young people globally will continue to be a key strategy in contributing to alleviating the many identified global challenges. Through shared experiences- solutions are discussed, ideas developed and adapted to each region. It is an avenue to link networks within regions, hold meetings regularly both physically and virtually to ensure impactful leaders can meet with and interact with committed young individuals. Without meaningful direction, global challenges will worsen, young people deserve the opportunity to engage in advanced problem-solving and experience sharing forums with leaders and their peers to explore critical issues which will be beneficial in their future key roles. As agents of positive change, young people should be empowered to acquire necessary skills such as professionalism, effective leadership, humility and honesty to address such challenges, benefit from other cultures and build a strong network among colleagues.
