We are pleased to promote on this blog an initiative of the B20 with the support of the G20 YEA, of which Yes for Europe is a proud founding member. It is a poster competition for individuals and teams up to 27 years of age intended to represent the theme of this year B20: “Resilience, Responsibility, Responsiveness –Towards a Future-oriented, Sustainable World Economy”. Winners will have the opportunity to attend B20 Summit in Berlin on May 2-3, 2017, a remarkable growth and networking opportunity.


Our world is facing tremendous challenges: diverse social and economic dynamics, inacceptable inequality within and among many countries, climate change and depletion of natural resources, terrorism and interstate conflicts. But there are also great opportunities: new digital technologies could allow for greater inclusion of people, innovation in health could help eradicate diseases, green technologies could boost economic growth and slow down climate change. We will only be able to tackle these challenges and seize the opportunities if we work together – towards a future-oriented economy that is built on resilience, responsibility and responsiveness.
