ABOUT THE YOUNG SOCIETAL LEADERS PROGRAMME

From 13 - 16 September 2017, 20 Young Societal Leaders (YSLs) from Asia and the rest of the world will gather in Singapore for the first time as part of the Singapore Summit to meet with the world's leading movers and shakers.

The inaugural Singapore Summit YSL Programme is an exclusive by-invitation-only programme designed for YSLs, aged 40 and under, who are doing significant work of making societies better for all. The Programme is designed for YSLs to have a voice on a global stage to convey their perspective, passion and purpose.

The Programme will give insights into how YSLs are moulding the future of their societies. It will also build a network of YSLs for future Summits, to ensure continued multigenerational conversations on and actions towards global societal issues that matter. YSLs will be able to glean diverse perspectives from each other and from established leaders that can further inform their work.

The Singapore Summit YSL Programme is part of the Singapore Summit, which brings together business and thought leaders from around the world. The Singapore Summit is a by-invitation-only event attended by Chairmen, Chief Executive Officers and prominent thinkers from Asia and globally. Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong is the Patron of Singapore Summit.

Programme Highlights

The YSLs will visit public and private sector organisations focusing on societal impact, and attend dialogue sessions with senior leaders in Singapore. The Guest of Honour at the Singapore Summit YSL Welcome Dinner on 13 September is Singapore's Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong, who is a former Prime Minister of Singapore and Patron of the Singapore Summit. Singapore's Minister for Education (Higher Education and Skills) and Second Minister for Defence, Ong Ye Kung, as well as Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Communications and Information and Ministry of Education, Dr Janil Puthucheary, will also be speaking to the delegates in two separate sessions.
