Miguel A Rozo
Strategic Advisor

Miguel’s background spans foreign affairs, entrepreneurship and advocacy. He’s the founder and former director of IdeasXChange, a Canadian youth social innovation and sustainability literacy initiative he led for three years (2015-18) before pivoting to international affairs. Forcibly displaced as a child in Colombia, he has now called Canada home for many years. He’s a TEDx speaker, former Canadian delegate to the 2017 G7 Youth Summit (Y7), an UNLEASH global talent, Climate Reality Leader, and a member of the Global Shapers Community. Most recently, he has spoken on post-pandemic recovery and restoring trust at the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, and alongside the UN General Assembly in New York with the FII Institute. He’s the co-chair of the Davos Lab, an initiative that produced the world’s first youth-driven recovery plan and reached over 2 million people by mobilizing young people around the world through global dialogues and surveys in more than 150 cities and 180 countries to shape a more inclusive recovery. His policy background spans across the United Nations (UNDP), the British Columbia Ministry of Health, consulting research in Silicon Valley, and now as an advisor in international affairs in Canada. He speaks English and Spanish fluently, along with intermediate German and French.
