Today the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Antonio Tajani, opened the Youth 7 Summit at the Foreign Ministry. The Youth 7 (Y7) Summit was established with the aim of enabling young people to put forward proposals for the Italian G7 Presidency.

Minister Tajani said: “Holding a dialogue with young people and listening carefully to their views are of fundamental importance in addressing the major challenges we have before us.“ He pointed out that the Italian G7 Presidency was laying particular trust in the contribution that the Y7 Summit would be able to make in terms of innovative proposals on issues such as climate change, labour market trends, social inclusion, equal opportunities and the impact of Artificial Intelligence.

The Summit opening ceremony was also attended by the Minister for Sport and Youth, Andrea Abodi; FAO’s Director General, Qu Dongyu; the CEO of EY Italy, Massimo Antonelli, and the President and founder of YAS (Young Ambassadors Society) and Y7 Chair, Alberta Pelino.

The Y7 Italy 2024 process is an initiative of the Italian non-profit Young Ambassadors Society (YAS), with the support of the Sherpa Office of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers. At the Y7 Summit, which will be held in Rome from 20 to 24 May, and of which the event at the Foreign Ministry is the opening moment, will be attended by some 130 young delegates aged between 20 and 35, selected by YAS and its counterpart associations from the G7 countries and the European Union. The Summit will consist of a series of negotiating sessions during which the young delegates will draft a communiqué containing proposals on the four above-mentioned thematic areas. At the end of the Summit, the communiqué will be handed over to the G7 Leaders.
