Young leaders and the financial crisis

BBC's David Willey spoke to a group of young leaders about the financial crisis, while they were gathering in Rome. This was in fact an AIESEC congress called "Global Leaders Summit", which I was also present, and gather all the AIESEC presidents (currents and elects) from each of the 100+ countries AIESEC is present in.

Hopes of world youth as G20 heads gather

The future is in their hands

The world economic crisis can only be solved by major reform of the financial system.

That is the conclusion of a BBC poll of people in 24 countries, commissioned ahead of the G20 summit in London this week.

Some 70% of those questioned said they thought major change was needed, while nearly two-thirds said they had been affected by the crisis at least a "fair amount".

But what has been the impact of the financial crisis on younger people?

Recently, youth leaders from around the world gathered in Rome to talk about the crisis.

The BBC's David Willey spoke to a group of them about their hopes and fears for the future.
