GSS know young people are dedicated to, passionate about and essential for shaping a better future. That is why in 2017 the Global Solutions Initiative launched the Young Global Changers (YGC) program to attract students and young professionals passionate about changing the world for the better.

Each year we’re summoning their knowledge and skills to innovate and implement new solutions that can meet today’s challenges and the challenges of the future.
