About Youth Global Forum
Since 2015, the Youth Global Forum has been an annual event that has served as a platform to promote youth interests, intergenerational and intercultural education and opportunity. Each year, the Youth Global Forum travels to a new destination with previous versions of the events being held in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Jakarta, Dubai and Paris. Previous themes of the event have included “Industry 5.0 vs Inclusive Development: Where is the Future?”, “The New Era of Employment and Education: Solutions for Change“, “Ethical Entrepreneurship in the Time of a Competitive Knowledge-based Economy“ and “Worldwide Impact Investment: the Role of Entrepreneurs”. The Youth Global Forum also hosts the annual Idea Grant Competition where 15 selected projects are given the opportunity to present their ideas in front of those in attendance and a jury panel consisting of members with expertise in entrepreneurship, business and academics. These ideas compete for several amazing prizes including internships to international enterprises and scholarships to international universities with the winning project receiving the coveted ‘Youth Time Idea Grant‘, which provides the funding necessary to turn one project into a reality.
