Youth 7

Chaired by the Future Leaders Network, the Youth 7 (Y7) champion the voice of Future Generations to G7 Ministers and Leaders.

Young people now, and in years to come, will bear the social and economic consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic. The Y7 call on G7 leaders to embed the needs of future generations in all national and international recovery plans, and to dramatically increase youth participation in democratic processes.

At the Y7 Summit, youth delegates from across the G7 nations presented their recommendations to Government which advise how they can ensure young peoples voices are heard throughout the UK's G7 Presidency, better involve young people in decision making and to actively consider the implications of decisions made today on the young people of tomorrow.

And Chair of the Y7, Sophie Daud, spoke directly with Prime Minister Boris Johnson about the issues that matter most to young people, from mental health and Covid, to climate change and jobs.
