Indonesian Youth Diplomacy - G20 Youth Summit 2020 For Indonesian, Saudi Arabia (Fully Funded)

Indonesian Youth Diplomacy is pleased to announce our call for applicants for the Indonesian delegation to the Y20 2020 Summit in Riyadh from October 10th-18th, 2020.

The Y20 Summit is the official platform for young people from across G20 countries to engage in policy discussions on the most pressing global, economic challenges and generate innovative solutions which will be presented to the G20 Leaders Summit for consideration in their discussions. As part of the Saudi Arabian Government’s presidency of the G20, an official Youth 20 (Y20) Summit will be hosted in Riyadh from October 10th-18th, 2020.

Indonesian youths started to participate in the Y20 (formerly G20 Youth Summit) in 2010, when five delegates represented Indonesia at the G8 & G20 Youth Summits in Vancouver, Canada. Ever since then, Indonesia sends delegations to the Y20 summit annually. Now we would like to invite you to become part of the growing network as one of the three Indonesian delegates by applying to this year's Summit.
  • In the previous summits, the hosting governments fund all in-country expenses throughout the summit. More details will be available closer to the date, but please be assured that past delegates have managed to lock-in sponsorship deals.

  • An inspirational young person (undergraduate/graduate student, recent graduate, or young professional in Indonesia or abroad) from either the public, private and/or civil society sectors;
  • An Indonesian citizen;
  • Aged between 20 and 35 years of age at the time of the Y20 Summit;
