Taking to Twitter, the director general said Youth20 is one of the "Engagement Groups" comprising non-government participants from each G20 member, which makes recommendations to G20 leaders and contributes to policy-making processes.

"#Guwahati will be hosting the #Y20 or #Youth20 Inception summit from Feb 6 to 8. So what is Y20? It's one of the "Engagement Groups" comprising non-government participants from each G20 member, which makes recommendations to G20 Leaders & contributes to policy-making processes," the director general tweeted.

Youth20 (Y20), with its first Y20 conference held in 2012, provides a platform that allows youth to express their vision and ideas on the G20 priorities, and comes up with a series of recommendations which are submitted to the G20 Leaders.

It'll be the first of various summits to be held on 5 Y20 themes at Universities across states  as a run-up to the final Youth-20 Summit," the director general said in another tweet.
