Collaborate for positive impact
The European Impact Summit (EIS20), organized by the Young Presidents Organization (YPO), will take place from 19-21 October 2020, hosted virtually by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in partnership with UN sister agencies. EIS20 will bring together 500+ international C-level executives aiming at creating solutions to today's European pressing issues.

EIS20, through its solutions, will provide direct input and influence the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The EIS20 messaging and impact will span the world carries across the broader YPO community of business leaders with sponsors spotlighted for action for positive impact, through leveraging the power of all of our partners.
