In a few days, the World Youth Forum (WYF) will take place in Sharm El-Sheikh from 4 to 10 November, carrying the slogan of “We Need to Talk”, under the patronage of President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi.
The forum aims to spread a message of peace, prosperity, harmony, and progress around the world.
Furthermore, the forum will bring together thousands of youth from all over the world, with the participation of more than 60 youth delegations.
In the same context, the forum is built around four pillars and themes. The first deals with “global youth issues”, including the discussion of terrorism, illegal migration, and refugee issues.
The second pillar focuses on “sustainable development, technology, and entrepreneurship”, reviewing international experiences in achieving sustainable development goals and presenting innovative youth experiences in entrepreneurship.
The third one is about “civilizations and culture”, including discussions about how to benefit from cultural diversity and the role of societies and states in reforming what causes conflicts and wars between nations.
The last pillar is “creating future leaders”, presenting the most significant international experiences in youth training and rehabilitation, in addition to discussing the role of states and societies in creating future leaders.
Moreover, the government launched the “We Need to Talk” campaign, posting videos on social media showing a group of youth of different nationalities.
Earlier, during the closing ceremony of the fourth National Youth Conference in Ismalia in April, Al-Sisi announced that Sharm El-Sheikh will host the World Youth Forum, and he invited the world’s youth to attend it to bring the message of peace, development, and love to the world from the Egypt.
The first national youth conference, which was held in Sharm El-Sheikh last year, was the reason why Al-Sisi thought of making the World Youth Forum, as it succeeded in putting forward eight recommendations.
These recommendations included; holding a monthly national youth conference, initiating a comprehensive community dialogue to develop and reform education, forming a national committee of youth under the direct supervision of the presidency, and carrying out a comprehensive examination, and reviewing the position of detained youth who didn’t receive any judicial decisions, in order to take the appropriate decisions for each case.
