They will also talk about the importance of activating young people globally.

Each of the six jury chairs will also address delegates in a president's address. The jury chairs include BBDO's David Lubars, R/GA's Bob Greenberg, AKQA's Rei Inamoto, Arc's Bill Rosen, Dentsu's Akira Kagami and Naked founder Jon Wilkins.
