GYEO Summit organizers subsidize a portion of the costs of participation through year-round sponsorship fundraising. Doing so enables us to keep our pricing tiers low and encourage participation from a diverse range of participants from around the world.
Since 2007, the GYEO Summit has operated on a demand-driven and sustainable basis, thanks to the hundreds of organizations and individuals who co-invest in the Summit through the contribution of financial and in-kind resources each year.
The 2017 Summit theme was, “The Future of Work: Youth Economic Opportunities in a Changing World.” Supported by four interconnected technical tracks, the agenda featured plenary discussions, interactive breakout and training sessions, and side convenings. Together, we explored what the future of work holds for young people in developing contexts, and for professionals working to expand youth social and economic inclusion in a changing world of work.
