The Singapore Summit Young Societal Leaders (YSL) Programme is an exclusive by-invitation-only programme designed for YSLs, aged 40 and under, who are doing significant work of making societies better for all. The Programme is designed for YSLs to have a voice on a global stage to convey their perspective, passion and purpose.

Through the Programme, YSLs in Singapore, across Asia and beyond will have the opportunity to interact with one another, and with the business leaders at the Singapore Summit.  A platform for continued multigenerational conversations, the Programme will allow YSLs to glean diverse perspectives from each other and from established leaders that can further inform their work and on global societal issues that matter. 

The Singapore Summit YSL Programme is part of the Singapore Summit, which brings together business and thought leaders from around the world. The Singapore Summit is a by-invitation-only event attended by Chairmen, Chief Executive Officers and prominent thinkers from Asia and globally. Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong is the Patron of Singapore Summit.
