• About Y20

As one of the official Engagement Groups of the G20, the Youth 20 (Y20) is a platform for young people across the G20 countries to have a dialogue, negotiate, and propose solutions for the world’s most pressing issues. The main outcome of the Y20 Summit is a policy recommendation, called the Y20 Communiqué, which would be handed over to the G20 heads of state. For more information, visit y20-indonesia.org.

Indonesian Youth Diplomacy (IYD) is the official host of the Y20 Summit Indonesia 2022, according to the decree by the Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia.

IYD is a nonprofit youth organization that actively promotes international exposure and drives inclusive empowerment for Indonesian youths to be influential voices at the national and international levels.

IYD has recruited Indonesian delegates for the Y20 Summit since 2010. It is the Youth Focal Point to the Republic of Indonesia.

Y20 started with a Kick-Off in February 2022, and followed by four Pre-Summits which highlight the four priority areas discussed at the Y20 Indonesia.

The four Pre-Summits are:

  1.  Pre-Summit on Youth Employment in Palembang, South Sumatra in March 2022;
  2. Pre-Summit on Digital Transformation in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara in April 2022;
  3. Pre-Summit on Sustainable and Liveable Planet in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan in May 2022;
  4. Pre-Summit on Diversity & Inclusion in Manokwari, West Papua in June 2022.

The Y20 Summit will be held in Jakarta and Bandung on 17-24 July 2022.

The events in the Pre-Summits and Summit include talk shows with an expert panel and FGD or town hall meeting with local youth.


Y20 Indonesia 2022 gives opportunities to local youth to participate in the Y20 Town Hall Meeting at Pre-Summits to discuss the priority issues with delegates and observers of Y20 Indonesia 2022. 


We also encourage all youth to join Y20 Indonesia 2022 events by attending Y20 Indonesia 2022 events online which information is available on our Instagram @y20indonesia2022

Participants of the Y20 forum itself are the youth delegates from the G20 countries. For Y20 Indonesia, there are 80 delegates from the G20 countries and 20 observers from international organizations, selected countries, and underrepresented communities.
