INSPIRE Youth Forum

INSPIRE Youth Forum

The HEC Paris INSPIRE Youth Forum invites students (15 -18 years old) to participate in an interactive conversation with speakers from around the world on topics currently shaping our future. The Forum is designed to inform, inspire, and engage students. In live, online sessions, participants will benefit from exchanging with experts in forward-thinking fields.

In 2022 the cutting-edge topic of debate was Artificial Intelligence.

Watch this space for inspiring topics in 2023.
