The RBC Audacious G7 Youth Global Challenge

Rapid Change and Pressing Global Challenges are open to the fresh perspective of young leaders. The challenges need the innovative approach to candidates who see the future for what it can become outside the limitations of what our past has been.

The Challenge is available for young delegates from across the G7 which will focus on a number of core policy themes. The top place for each policy theme will be announced and awarded a prize package from the $7,500 total prize pool, provided by RBC.
