YMCA175: a message to the world

This year, to mark the 175th anniversary of YMCA, YMCA175 will bring together thousands of young leaders for a unique four-day event, the first of its kind in the organisation’s history, taking place at ExCeL London, from 4 to 8 August 2019.

Carlos Sanvee, World YMCA Secretary General, explains why this global youth event is a springboard for global change, for unity and celebration.

Connecting young leaders like never before, celebrating 175 years of YMCA and young people transforming communities, and creating positive change and new ideas to shape the future.

Registration is open for Group Leaders, individuals and families. Young and senior leaders, YMCA staff and volunteers, trustees, board members, General Secretaries, supporters, retirees and associated networks are all invited to become a delegate and join YMCA175.

Organisers YMCA Europe recognise there are some movements whose delegates will require visas to enter the UK. Therefore, they will continue to hold a number of the discount tickets back for a longer period of time specifically for those movements who may register at a later date subject to successful visa applications. All tickets sales will stop on June 30th.

More than half of all tickets for YMCA175 have been available at the early bird price to make this global youth event as accessible, inclusive and equitable as possible for young leaders from around the world to attend this historic event.
