Each year, we choose a different business-relevant topic and ask the youth about the future trends within that scope. The goal of the research is to shine a spotlight on the opinions of the brilliant young minds in our community of Leaders of Tomorrow. The results give insights as to which issues are currently burning and what should keep global leaders awake at night.


Every year we publish the Magazine after the St. Gallen Symposium spreading the word about insights and key findings.
