Nominations are open for the World Economic Forum (WEF) Young Global Leaders Community Program Class of 2024. The Young Global Leaders Community is an accelerator for a dynamic community of exceptional people with the vision, courage, and influence to drive positive change in the world.

Every year, WEF selects a remarkable group of exceptional leaders under the age of 40 who have the tenacity, foresight, and track record to better the world. They seek individuals who reflect global diversity, innovate to advance the public interest, and place a premium on genuine public-private cooperation exchanges. These individuals will be invited to join the community and embark on a three-year transformational journey.
