The 2019 Youth Leadership Summit will bring together 500 university students and young professionals, selected competitively from Bangladesh and around the world, along with a constellation of renowned speakers, to facilitate an intergenerational dialogue on pressing issues affecting young people. The theme of this year’s Summit, Strength in Unity: Forging the Future, is born of the belief that the values that unite us are stronger than the forces that divide us. The Summit will be a celebration of the points in common between people of different origins, using them as a vehicle to bridge the gaps in society.
