The Young Diplomats of Canada are looking for Canadians between the ages of 18-30 with an extraordinary record of accomplishment & genuine commitment to service.
The Y7 is the youth-focused engagement group of the G7. Each G7 country (and the European Union) nominates a national delegation of young people who travel to the host country and negotiate a youth communiqué. Policy recommendations contained therein are presented to G7 leaders.
This year’s Y7 will take place in late April/early May in Ottawa, Ontario, on the traditional unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishnaabeg People.
The three (3) themes of Y7 2018 align broadly with those of Canada’s G7 Presidency:
- Gender equality (also a cross-cutting lens throughout all Y7 2018 activities)
- Climate change & the environment
- Future of work
The deadline is February 28, 2018
