Your Future Your ideas

The YES! – Young Economic Summit is the largest German school competition on economic and social challenges for teams of the grades 10 to 12.

Students, in close cooperation with researchers of renowned economic research institutions, develop their own solutions for regional and global challenges in the economy, society, politics and environment.

They present their ideas at regional conferences and discuss them with experts from the fields of business, politics, academics and international institutions.

The best solutions of each region – selected only by the participating students – compete at the national final in September to become the winning solution of the YES! – Young Economic Summit.
