Expo 2020 Dubai organisers have announced the launch of the YouthConnect Forum, which will take place on the 14th of November.
This first interactive full-day forum is open to all UAE residents between the ages of 18 and 25 years. Attendees will be introduced to a host of ‘hands-on’ participatory workshops, engaging exhibits, and areas for in-depth discussions and ‘edutainment’.
Subjects covered by this year’s YouthConnect will include Business and Leadership, Start-ups and Entrepreneurship, Science and Engineering, Technology, Coding and Gaming, Arts and Culture, Innovation, Health and Lifestyle and Employability.
Youth is at the heart of organizer’s plans. As young men and women who will be representing and leading the nation in the years to come, it is important that they contribute to the dedicated events and express their opinion about what they would like to see and do during the event.
YouthConnect has been planned in coordination with people from across the target age group. Furthermore, as their peers sign up for the event, they will be asked to design their own individual experience.
