Leading The Americas Scholarship

Are you a young leader from The Americas? You could attend the Global Young Summit 2021 Summit in Munich from 11 - 14 October through our flagship Scholarship. 
About the Leading The Americas Scholarship:

The Leading The Americas Scholarships is an initiative designed to ensure that outstanding young people from The Americas are represented at the Global Young Leaders Summit 2021 in Munich.The Americas are collectively going through major leadership transitions, with many of those changes in governance creating ripples of instability across the region. Months long protests erupted in Chile and the humanitarian crisis engulfing Venezuela, both causing instability. Argentina's debt crisis is still looming and misinformation is still o the rise throughout the region. Yet in the midst of all the uncertainty, young leaders are emerging to set their countries back on course. The clean energy movement is taking heed and advancements in tech are looking to make societies more equitable.In the midst of these challenges and opportunities, it is young leaders who are devising meaningful strategies to build a more sustainable region. Are you one of those leaders? If so, Global young Leaders is looking to bring you to the next annual Summit.
