The Global Youth Summit hosts the 9th bi-annual environmental student event under this year’s theme being ‘Youth for Climate Change’, announcing Hassan Younes.

SINGAPORE, VICTORIA, SINGAPORE, June 16, 2018 / — The Global Youth Summit is due to host its ninth bi-annual event – bringing together international schools and student delegations with their environmental projects and initiatives under this year’s theme being ‘Youth for Climate Change’.

For three days a multitude of events and workshops, talks, programs, keynote speakers and of course the environmental award judging across different projects will occupy the three hundred international delegates – making it the largest non-government environmental youth event globally.

Event founder and president of the Hemisphere Foundation, Ms Ann Phua has just announced Australian Hassan Younes as this year’s panel judge and keynote presenter.

Younes comes from a background in aerospace engineering and is a recognised thought-leader in vocational training and education in Australia and internationally. Younes is the chair of the International Academy of Marawi and Director of the Australian Training College and has presented to academic, business and organisational leaders globally.

His appointment as one of the judges for the Global Youth Summit comes on the back of him being confirmed as the keynote presenter at the event, which is set to attract students from 15 countries.

“I feel honoured to have been chosen to address this year’s delegation of thousands of young environmental warriors. The Global Youth Summit is a fantastic initiative and a platform for learning and exchange that has a massive environmental impact globally,” Hassan Younes says.

“I know there will be many great projects and environmental initiatives coming together, and judging these will be a tough job. But even more than that, seeing so many international schools and students committed to creating a better world just goes to show how much positive work is being done for our environment. I am grateful to be part of the 2018 Global Youth Summit,” Younes adds.

Over the past 4 years, more than 28 000 students from 242 schools and 15 countries have benefitted from the Global Youth Summit – which has been held in Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia and now back in Singapore for the second time. The impact this has is not only on those that attend and their communities, but many of the projects and outcomes have spread to other schools, communities and countries.

Under the motto of "Take Actions for Earth" the Global Youth Summit has been hailed as one of the top highlights on the environmental calendar, taking place twice annually.

Founder and president of the Global Youth Summit, Ann Phua, says, “We could not be more happy with the number of registrations for this year’s event and can not wait to learn about all the amazing environmental projects the students have been working on. Likewise, we are pleased to have Hassan Younes join us as a judge and keynote presenter at this year’s event. It is clear that the Global Youth Summit is not only growing from strength to strength but is attracting more attention from governments, environmental stakeholders and thought-leaders internationally.”

Taking place in Singapore, at the National Library Plaza from June 28th – 30th the Global Youth Summit will again be a melting pot for ideas, technology and initiatives all aiming to protect and improve our natural environment. And, more importantly, to make the world a better place for generations to come. To find out more about the summit, log onto Actions for Earth or contact Hassan Younes at
