Well, we can finally announce with great pleasure that there will be a Youth Forum 2010! From 28 June – 1 July 2010 the second edition of the annual centre piece event of the GHF’s Youth Forum will take place in Geneva, Switzerland.
We vividly remember the words of Kofi Annan, President of the Global Humanitarian Forum, finishing his speech at the GHF’s inaugural Youth Forum, which took place in Geneva last June: “Share this experience with young people back home. Set up groups that can replicate what you are doing here and share the findings with your friends here today, and it will snowball”.
And it did snowball! It is incredible to see what great ambassadors the participants of the inaugural Youth Forum were, spreading the spirit of the event, and how many new young people got interested and engaged in the activities of the GHF’s Youth Forum.
This is why we decided to extend the number of invited participants to the Youth Forum 2010 from 100 to 150, to prolong the duration of the event from three to four days, and to diversify our entry-competition!
Entry-competition? Yes, in order to be selected as a participant to the Youth Forum 2010 we ask you to engage in our entry-competition, submitting an answer to one of four questions by text, video, audio, photo or whatever means you want to use! Your submission does not have to be very professional, nor very long; all we want is to see that you are motivated to participate at the Youth Forum 2010.
The entry-competition opens on 1 February 2010, and that day you will find all necessary information for the competition on www.ghfyouthforum.org.
So get your camera ready, prepare your tape recorder or sharpen your pencil! We are looking forward to your submission!
