The YGL´s define themselves as a unique, multistakeholder community of exceptional young leaders who share a commitment to shaping the global future. They represent the future of leadership, coming from all regions of the world and representing business, government, civil society, arts & culture, academia and media.
The building was full of people from all over the world and every sector of society: politicians from South America, journalists from Africa, physicians from Europe, social entrepreneurs from Asia… everyone trying hard to make a difference in the world.
After touring entreamigos, these 35 brilliant and inspiring young minds explored different parts of San Pancho to learn about the effects of globalization in a small community.
Three main topics were discussed: education, conservation and economy. Together with conservation organizations and members of the local community, we addressed the challenges and opportunities the community faces every day. There was a brief brainstorming session afterwards.
Because of the magnitude of the visit, more than 200 security elements were placed all over San Pancho, to take care of the town´s order and safety.
It was such an amazing and nourishing experience for everyone at entreamigos. We are grateful for being part of this event. Hopefully, great projects will result from this visit.
