FACILITATION + CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT
Youth-Led Solutions Summit
YMCA of the USA, in partnership with the World YMCA and delivery partner YMCA San Francisco, was developing the first in a series of global forums that would bring together young leaders from around the world to find solutions to tackle the problems identified by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The event would coincide with the UN's 75th anniversary, with the founding declaration having been signed at the Herbst Theatre, in San Francisco, flagship events were to include a ceremony at the theatre and a welcome at Salesforce Tower.
A committee of diverse youth voices was brought together to form a central consultation group, who were provided with the agency to bring the event to life.
Over an initial week-long period on-site, the group were tasked to work out the event's format, delegate recruitment mechanisms, content production and the journey that attendees would undergo before, during and after the event.

Bromfield Events provided facilitation and expertise to the planning committee and its partners to support the delivery and direction to the groups work, ultimately co-creating a plan that could be executed by organisers.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the event later transitioned to a digital format, with Bromfield Events leading the reimagining of the concept.
