The World Cities Summit Young Leaders is a select group of change-makers from diverse sectors who shape the global urban agenda at the annual World Cities Summit Young Leaders Symposium.

The decisions that leaders make today will impact more than half of the world's population as by 2060, more than 50% of the world's population will live in cities. The WCS YL initiative provides a platform for discourses on urban issues and launch initiatives to tackle urbanisation challenges.

MEET OUR YOUNG LEADERS

World Cities Summit Young Leaders typically:

  • Have proven records as established leaders in urban sectors through championed projects or published insights
  • Come from sectors related to urban development and governance
  • Possess impeccable records in the public eye and are of good social standing
  • Are passionate about the programme and are willing to cultivate the next batch of young urban leaders as mentors;
  • Are between the ages of 30 and 45 at the time of nomination
     

All Young Leaders will actively be involved in World Cities Summit events and Symposium discussions and are encouraged to launch initiatives for 3 years from the time they are appointed. After 3 years, members are entitled to join the Alumnus, and have privileged access to members' events and will be invited to mentor current members.
