INDONESIAN YOUTH DIPLOMACY FAQ Is this Summit similar to Model United Nations? Even though the format of the Y20 Summit is modeled after the real G8 & G20 Summits (ie. Invited countries and minister positions available), the Y20 Summit is not a model event. Delegates may use current policies of their respective governments as their base of arguments during negotiations. However, the Y20 Summit aims to go beyond simulating existing international policies and promote creative and pragmatic solutions to current world problems. Delegates are encouraged to think outside the box and represent fresh yet practical approach to the G20 issues with a distinct youth voice. The Summit’s communiqué will be represented to current policymakers in each of the participating countries as well as a formal youth input to the following G20 Summit. This gives the Summits a unique advantage of ensuring the youth’s voices reach today’s lawmakers. How much does it cost to attend the Summit? This year, all inland costs, including accommodation, meals and airport transfers will be covered by the Organizing Committee (OC) Australia as host for the Summit. However, flights costs, transit costs and travel insurance are not covered. But don’t be discouraged by this as past delegates have managed to lock-in sponsorship deals.
