Island17 Youth Summit & Hackathon

Youth are struggling right now. 😓
We’ve been listening.

They don’t feel safe, and they don’t see many options in their lives to dream a different future, and build it.

Positive action in collaboration with others with meta-leadership support has been proven to drastically improve mental health and wellbeing. And we need them as much as they need us right now.

Join us to celebrate the next generation of leadership & purpose-driven lifestyle from August 17-20, 2022. This is both for ADULTS with an ADD-ON YOUTH SUMMIT to include most ages.



The Island17 Youth Summit will be held from August 17th through August 20th 2022. This 3-day virtual plus IRL hackathon is an experiential and collaborative summit integrating music, art, tech, entrepreneurship, and mentorship to address local/global challenges.

This value-packed event has been underwritten by Orly Amor and her Health, Wellness Network of Commerce Centers &Trust, the Island17 DAO team, and partners ExOEconomy, ExO Angels, Logos Capital, our Ambassador of Hope Chilopod, and her AI chatbot to prompt global humans, especially youth, to inspire mental health and wellbeing.

PODCAST: Manifesting in the Metaverse; a NextGEN Economy Podcast episode

We have over 20 industries in the throes of disruption, and I believe that youth and the young-minded have the creative ability to carve the roadmap to the evolution of our civilization.
