Held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Khalid bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Youth 4 Sustainability (Y4S) initiative provides opportunities that enable young people to become active leaders in the world’s transition to a more sustainable future. It consists of two pillar programs: the Sustainability Ambassadors (SA) and the Future Sustainability Leaders (FSL). Mentorship, engagement opportunities and educational programs are developed for students and young professionals to strengthen the talent pipeline of the world’s sustainability leaders.

At ADSW, Y4S is represented by an interactive hub that attracts around 3,000 students throughout the week.
