Embracing Friendships for Life!



Global Youth Leaders’ Summit is an engaging series of international youth conferences, held annually to bring together youth leaders of different nationality, ethnicity and cultural backgrounds, with the aim of nurturing global leaders and facilitating the establishment of lasting friendships for the future.

Themed Embracing Friendships for Life, the Summit aims to develop greater cross-cultural understanding and empathy between Singapore youths and their contemporaries through cultivating a global mind set and inclusive attitude towards social integration and cohesion. Featuring racial and transcultural initiatives and workshops, the Summit seeks to become both a catalyst and an origin to instil positive sentiments towards embracing our racial, religious and cultural diversity within Singaporean youths, new immigrants and international friends at a young age.

Uniquely Singapore

Appreciating our Vibrant Transcultural Diversity

Targeting to be the largest edition this year by involving more than 800 Singapore and international youths, the initiative will feature several uplifting pre-summit and summit activities. Exciting lead-up programmes include multi-languages learning, food trail adventuring, overseas learning exchanges, and a Cultural Amazing Race to involving more than 20 schools and youth organizations all around Singapore.

The Summit shall engage youth delegates in interactive and thought-provoking inter-religion forums on uniquely-Singapore topics like Void Deck Weddings, Appreciating Religious Food, Meanings and Adornment of Religious Clothing etc, and experiential learning activities such as Heritage on Wheels – a team-based competition and learning journey where youth delegates embark on an exciting adventure to discover Singapore’s cultural heritage along with her unique sights and sounds, before concluding with the world’s largest buka puasa gala dinner to be held in conjunction with Singapore Racial Harmony Day as well as the Muslim holy Ramadan.
