WCF International Youth Forum 2016

    WCF International Youth Forum 2016 in Bali, Indonesia
    Fully funded!

    International Youth Forum

    Deadline: July 30, 2016
    Location: Bali, Indonesia
    Dates: 9- 14 October, 2016

    Overview:

    Youths, frequently associated with immaturity or inexperience, have in fact played an important role in bringing about positive and significant changes in society. The European youth movement in 1848, the American Beatniks in the sixties, and post-colonial youth movements in Asia and Africa, to name a few, are some examples that demonstrate how youths can become a socio-political agent with a significant transformational capacity. In this spirit, efforts have been taken to position youth as an equal partner of discussion, with their own views and ideas that hold value, to involve them in solving global problems today.

    Main Theme:

    The International Youth Forum (IYF) will be held in Bali for six days, from 9-14 October 2016, parallel and in conjunction with the World Culture Forum (WCF). IYF invites the participation of youths from around the world, with a particular emphasis on independent thinking and social transformation, to represent the youth voice in an effort to mainstream culture into the agenda of development. The main theme of IYF, “Youth Culture for Social Transformation and Equality” is directly correlated to the WCF theme, “Culture for an Inclusive Sustainable Planet”.

    Objective:

    Through a series of activities, youths are expected to build an awareness of the importance of a cultural perspective in perceiving social, economic and political issues globally and locally. Establishing this awareness in youth will create opportunities for social change in today’s digital age, create an understanding of the global social-economic disparity, and encourage them to get involved actively in building a better society and creating a network of youths to accommodate the global youth movement to act and inspire positive changes in society through a cultural perspective.

    Participant Recruitment:

    We are calling for 200 youth representatives from 50 countries to join as participants of IYF. All participants will receive full funding.
