Global Youth Summit 2013: Box Broken


Last September 21, 2013 thousands of inspired delegates all over the world to make a difference came together at the SM North Edsa Sky Dome for AIESEC’s one-day event called the Global Youth Summit 2013, with the theme, “Breaking the Box.” This year’s theme Global Youth Summit 2013: Breaking the Box, focused on driving youth leadership that is fueled global-mindedness and innovation.

Young delegates faced discussions and activities that challenged the status quo and activities that honed their skills in creating anticipative solutions that will create impact on both the nation and for humanity.


Delegates were given the privilege to learn from various moving speakers such as Lourd de Veyra (multi-talented and multi-awarded journalist and personality), Migz Villafuerte (Governor of Camarines Sur), Dustin Masancay, (Associate Director for Ventures at IdeaSpace) Atom Araullo, (news reporter) Alex Eduque, (Habitat Ambassador for “Habitat for Humanity.”) Tony Abad (Managing Director of T/A Trade Advisory Services) and Rj Ledesma (Writer and Executive Vice President) to further equip them in their knowledge for change.

Under the premise of instigating actual social change, GYS 2013’s goal was to extend its impact beyond the one-day event by instilling a lasting mindset that the youth can do something concrete and substantial by generating innovative ideas with a specific vision for the future, grounded by tangible solutions.
