With the Global Young Leaders Union, the Confucius Institute at the University of Graz is initiating an international network of young leaders, companies and start-ups.

Young managers and talents are to be encouraged and supported. The project, based in Graz, aims to strengthen Styria/Austria as a business location and raise its profile worldwide. The Union is a non-profit organisation that extends its activities around the world. It was founded in autumn 2021 and operates independently of any political, religious or ideological world view.
