GYDI is dedicated to educating, engaging, and empowering young people around the world as leaders in addressing humanity's collective global challenges.
Our Network

Educate, Engage, Empower


Solving global challenges requires a global team. GYDI gathers young leaders from across the world and builds bridges for them to engage in collective learning and solutions-building activities, with the collaboration of our international partners.


Young people have a crucial role to play as leaders tackling global challenges in order to design and build a better world. GYDI exists to empower these young leaders, focusing in the areas of sustainable development and action on climate change.
