Deadline: February 25, 2019
Apply for the World Youth Forum’s Arab and African Youth Platform, a three-day event taking place from 16 to 18 March 2019 in Aswan, Egypt. It follows the recommendations of the second edition of World Youth Forum, of establishing a platform for the Arab and African youth to discuss the important challenges facing both regions in “Aswan”, the capital for African youth.
The World Youth Forum Platforms is all about engaging youth from all around the globe and connecting them with top policymakers with one goal in mind–to make the world a better place.
Youth in the Arab region and Africa share a lot of history, as well as present circumstances, this makes the cooperation between them essential for the development of their countries. Youth in both regions have grown to prove that they are capable of developing a promising vision of integration between both regions.
In this context, the Arab and African Youth Platform is founded for youth in both regions to share and exchange experiences. Participants will have the chance to discuss various topics that are of concern to both Arab and African youth, with the aim of fostering the Arab and African cooperation. The Arab and African Youth Platform will hold various sessions, workshops, and roundtable, which will bridge the gap between our young promising leaders and top policy and decision makers.
World Youth Forum is proud to launch WYF Platforms. An initiative found to endorse youth ideas on specific topics through focused platforms to discuss topics that are of interest and importance taking into consideration various themes. As the network grows, and we engage more youth; the World Youth Forum Platforms are coming to action to incubate youth discussions and ideas through a series of events discussing various topics.
