What is the Y7?

The Y7 is the annual youth summit associated with the G7 (formerly the G8) Summit. Delegates to the Y7 develop policy statements representing young voices addressed to the G7 leadership. The 2020 Y7 Summit took place from June 3-5, 2020.

A Virtual Summit

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Y7 Summit transitioned into a completely virtual experience. Delegates enjoyed a series of online discussions with high level government officials, public figures, and diplomacy professionals.


The 2020 Y7 Summit was proudly hosted and organized by Young Professionals in Foreign Policy (YPFP), a volunteer-run non-profit organization that develops leadership, skills, and community for the next generation of foreign policy leaders.
