2019 Global Youth Leadership Summit

Creating a Lasting Legacy

 

The Global Youth Leadership Summit has been an integral part of the Special Olympics movement for over a decade, with the first Summit taking place in Alaska USA, as part of the 2001 World Winter Games. Following the Summit in Abu Dhabi, the Youth Leaders are implementing their innovative ideas of inclusion through youth-led projects in their respective communities with support from Special Olympics and its partners.

 

These 53 projects are a powerful legacy of the 2019 Special Olympics World Games and will positively affect hundreds of schools and thousands of young people around the world - all while working towards a shared global vision: inclusion.

The Youth

Over the course of 4 days, more than 150 youth and adult leaders from over 35 countries gathered together, making connections, proposing solutions and learning from each other.
