Voices and opinions from the next generation of leaders

We empower the voices of the next generation. Through our year-round initiatives, we harness the worries and opinions of today’s most promising young talents and take the brightest ideas to the next level.

Through our year-round initiatives, we support our global community of young, bright minds beyond the St. Gallen Symposium in selected projects. We harness the worries and opinions of today’s most promising talents and maintain an active community of former symposium participants around the globe.
