Young Ghanaian Leaders Summit 2020 takes place on November 28th, 2020 and engages over 300 young leaders from Ghana. Young Ghanaian Leaders Summit focuses on connecting, debating or brainstorming and supporting young people that envisage and bring to life solutions to the challenges being confronted by the Ghanaian youth and develop projects/initiatives that will help solve or address these challenges.

Young Ghanaian Leaders Summit will empower youth-led solutions and provide a unique platform for youth leaders in Ghana to exchange experience and ideas and empower them to possess the tools needed to realize their vision for a better community.

Organized by Young Global Leaders Network, the Summit is also an opportunity for participants to commonly imagine how the New Africa could look like: from the impact of the current challenges in Employment & Entrepreneurship, Politics & Trust to how Technology transforms Industries, Services and Identities that Africa is confronted with.

This summit brings together young people working on issues as varied as education, entrepreneurship, volunteerism, youth policies, equality, and so much more! At the Youth Summit, participants will be grouped by the issues that they work on in order to learn from each other’s experiences as well as use their issue to practically understand useful concepts.
