The World Youth Forum is now accepting applications for Arab & African Youth Platform 2019. The duration of WYF international youth forum is 3 days and will run from 16-18 March 2019, Aswan.  It follows the recommendations of the second edition of World Youth Conference, 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. Registration closes on 25 February 2019.

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 a platform built by promising youth. It sends a message of peace, prosperity, harmony, and progress to the entire world. It engages youth from around the globe in an enriching set-up, allowing them to exchange views and recommend initiatives to decision-makers and influential figures. The forum is a chance for you to engage with top policymakers, network with promising youth from the region and the world that are determined to make our world a better place for everyone.
