Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Application Deadline: April 27th 2018

Rapid change and pressing global challenges need the innovative approach and fresh perspective of young leaders who see the future for what it can become outside the limitations of what our past has been.

This year, Canada has the opportunity to host young delegates from across the G7, leading up the 2018 G7 Summit, which will focus on a number of core policy themes. RBC, Audacious Futures, and the Young Diplomats of Canada are coming together to extend this opportunity to all youth across the G7 to pitch their ideas.

Finalists will have the opportunity to pitch their ideas at a Post-Summit Event in late May and a chance to win one of three prize packages, from the $7,500 total prize pool!

The Audacious Challenge

Pitch your most audacious idea for the future of the G7

While most policy summits are limited to high-level officials and a few youth delegates, the RBC Audacious G7 Youth Challenge aims to connect, enable, and mobilize G7 youth with external stakeholders on their big ideas, allowing unprecedented opportunity for young innovators to have their voices heard and responded to.

How To Participate

We’ve designed the challenge to be as simple and accessible to youth across the G7 as possible:


Explore the policy themes, consult with stakeholders, and check back into our website for research resources on the policy themes.


Outline the basics of your idea and practice pitching your audacious idea in 2 mins or less!


Apply using the form on our website with a YouTube link to your final take of a 2-minute video pitch.


Join us at the Post-Summit Event in Toronto in late May, where we’ll feature the top Challenge finalists and final recommendations from the Y7 2018 Summit. The top place for each policy theme will be announced and awarded a prize package from the $7,500 total prize pool, provided by RBC.
