The Global Youth Summit, according to organizer AIESEC, is a "gathering of thousands of youth leaders from all over the country in pursuit of designing their future, developing their leadership skills, and delivering on the promise of a better society—one person, one community at a time."
Through the event, AIESEC seeks to inspire the world's youth by cultivating a more global mindset, providing an avenue for cultural exchange and responding to the most pressing social issues of the day.
