The Salzburg Global Forum for Young Cultural Innovators (YCI) is a ten-year project. Further, launched by Salzburg Global Seminar in 2014 to engage fifty of the world’s most dynamic young creative changemakers every year. Young innovators in the culture and arts sector are providing some of the most imaginative new impulses for social improvement. Also, sustainable development around the world today. They change the way we see and interact with each other. Young artists, creative entrepreneurs and cultural leaders demonstrate the creative vision, talent, and energy that our societies so desperately need to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
Moreover, the young cultural innovators join the annual Forum in Salzburg from “YCI hubs” in six regions of the world to help them develop the dynamic vision, entrepreneurial skills, and global networks needed to advance their organizations, their causes, and their communities. Also, The YCI Forum represents a major commitment by Salzburg Global Seminar to fostering creative innovation and entrepreneurship worldwide with the intention of building a more vibrant and resilient arts sector and of advancing sustainable economic development, positive social change agendas, and urban transformation worldwide.
