The WEF Young Global Leaders honours young people from all over the globe who have made significant contributions in business, politics, the arts, technology, sports, activism, and social work. This year’s class also featured Costa Rica president Carlos Alvarado Quesada and controversial interim president of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó Márquez.

Members of the Young Global Leaders Class of 2019 will soon embark on a five-year leadership programme where they tackle societal, political, and environmental challenges. Once the five-year programme is completed, members can then join the alumni community where they can continue to engage with the WEF. 

Among the other noted individuals who were featured in WEF’s Young Global Leaders in the past include human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, French President Emmanuel Macron, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Adern, and Google co-founder, Larry Page.

We’re incredibly proud of Syed Saddiq, Yeo Bee Yin, and Anjhula Mya Bais for getting such a cool opportunity. Malaysia boleh!
