About Young Global Pioneers

What and why

Young Global Pioneers (YGP) establishes Global Talent Networks for young talents aged between 19 and 25, who are curious about the world around them and eager to find out how they can make their mark. We aim to shape the next generation of responsible leaders with global insights, intercultural skills and aspiration to make their mark.

Each YGP Global Talent Network kick-starts on a 3-week Learning Journey, designed to stimulate the young talents’ global insights, intercultural competences and ability for innovative reflection on global challenges. The young talents travel in a group of approximately 25 peers, with diverse backgrounds coming from an array of countries, in order to interact, inspire and be inspired, and to engage in a lasting global network.

Our unique learning architecture has been developed by Professor Subramanian Rangan from INSEAD Business School, with the Learning Journey designed in partnership with companies, universities, Global Shapers from World Economic Forum, SOS Children’s Village, Save the Children, WWF and other affiliate organizations from around the world.

Upon completing the Learning Journey, Young Global Pioneers will continue to support and facilitate the YGP Global Talent Network for life-long friendships and global inspiration.
