GLOBAL FORUM 2017
Presently, the world economy is experiencing a protracted crisis. Further, diminishing resources in an ever-increasing population presents additional challenges and in order to improve the situation both locally and globally, we need new types of entrepreneurial thinking. The aim of the Youth Global Forum 2017 is to bring young people together to discuss and redefine what it means to be thinking as an entrepreneur in today’s economic climate.
One of the key visions of the UAE’s national agenda is to develop a sustainable knowledge-based economy in addition to becoming one of the world leaders in the Human Development Index. As such, the cosmopolitan city of Dubai was an obvious choice to host this year’s Youth Global Forum which will be focused on Ethical Entrepreneurship in the Time of a Competitive Knowledge-based Economy.
Through a series of educational and interactive workshops and keynote speeches led by a team of highly-accomplished guest speakers, over 100 participants from across the globe will be presented with the opportunity to unlock their leadership potential and increase professional growth.
Additionally, participants of the Youth Global Forum Forum 2017 will have a direct opportunity to apply for Youth Time International Movement's Idea Grant - with the winner acquiring direct support toward the implementation of his or her project. Other winners are awarded one year bachelor/masters scholarships by Anglo American University and Zagreb School of Business.
Participants with innovative social impact ideas will be given the chance to present their own entrepreneurial projects, with the best being awarded a grant to realize it. Other prizes will include full scholarships at Anglo American University and Zagreb School of Business. This year, the project themes include:
- Education and Research;
- Science and Technology;
- Sustainable Environment and Infrastructure.
