Agenda For The Global Forum In Barcelona Unveiled

The Youth Time Global Forum in Barcelona will begin in about a month and will last three days. In the fol­low­ing para­graphs Youth Time offers a descrip­tion of what par­tic­i­pants can expect.

Day 1: Net­work­ing day

After the par­tic­i­pants have arrived, reg­is­tered and checked in at our venue, they will be taken to the city cen­tre of Barcelona. Here they will take part in social activ­i­ties, which have been spe­cially pre­pared for our event to let the par­tic­i­pants get acquainted with one another in a relaxed and enjoy­able way. In the evening there will be an open­ing event with a buf­fet, a net­work­ing game, and a wel­come party!

Day 2: Employ­ment day

After break­fast we will open the Forum with speeches by promi­nent guests. Right after that the ple­nary ses­sions will begin, in which the day’s topic – employ­ment – will be dis­cussed under the title: ‘Chal­leng­ing Youth Unem­ploy­ment’. Among the keynote speak­ers are Chris Barnes, an entre­pre­neur who has founded a suc­cess­ful online adver­tis­ing agency, as well as Felix Mar­quardt, an estab­lished writer for the Huff­in­g­ton Post as well as the founder of ‘The Atlantic Din­ners’, where opin­ion mak­ers from the fields of pol­i­tics, busi­ness, and the arts gather to exchange ideas.

After inspir­ing speeches and dis­cus­sions with our speak­ers, we will con­tinue with the project pre­sen­ta­tions. These will be han­dled by young and ambi­tious par­tic­i­pants who are eager to share their solu­tions to the employ­ment issue. The projects will be eval­u­ated by an expert panel as well as by the par­tic­i­pants, who will have the oppor­tu­nity to ques­tion the project pre­sen­ters. At the end of the work­ing day there will be an inter­est­ing work­shop, to chal­lenge the minds of every­one at the event.

Day 3: Edu­ca­tion day

After break­fast we will go straight to the ple­nary ses­sions, in which the day’s topic – edu­ca­tion – will be dis­cussed under the title: ‘The Future of Edu­ca­tion’. Among the keynote speak­ers you can expect Man­ish Dabas, chair­man of the BRICS inter­na­tional Forum, as well as Sil­via Crocitta, youth trainer and founder of the EuroDemos Youth Mobil­ity NGO. After a break, we will con­tinue with the project pre­sen­ta­tions, which this time will focus on the mat­ter of edu­ca­tion. At the end of the pre­sen­ta­tions, par­tic­i­pants will vote for the win­ner of the event and will then con­clude the pro­gram with another work­shop, this one pro­vid­ing an overview.

Finally, in the evening every­body will have to dress up, before they will be taken to a spe­cial loca­tion for the offi­cial clos­ing cer­e­mony. Here the win­ners of the Youth Time Global Forum will be announced, and their vic­tory will be cel­e­brated with an incred­i­ble Span­ish party!

How the Global Forum evolved from the Rhodes Youth Forum

Youth Time always strives for inno­va­tion and improve­ment, and this year the team has the chal­leng­ing task of out­do­ing the expe­ri­ence of the last few years.

The pro­gram has been inten­si­fied in com­par­i­son with last year’s event. First of all, the pro­gram is one day shorter, which leaves less time to decide who this year’s win­ner will be. There will also be a block of time on the sched­ule for jour­nal­ists to inter­view our speak­ers and guests, mak­ing speak­ers and jour­nal­ists busier than ever. Finally there will be fewer work­ing hours, and par­tic­i­pants will be respon­si­ble for decid­ing the event winner.

More active role

In com­par­i­son with last year, when par­tic­i­pants were divided accord­ing to their field of inter­est, this year every­body will see all the projects. This is sim­ply the result of the fact that all par­tic­i­pants will vote to select a win­ner and accord­ingly will have to take a look at all the projects. Also there will be an increased focus on net­work­ing, as there will be more time avail­able for net­work­ing activ­i­ties in the pro­gram. Finally, in order to facil­i­tate net­work­ing, Youth Time has devel­oped an app which should increase the inter­ac­tiv­ity among par­tic­i­pants at the event.

To speak in the spirit of Daft Punk, get ready for a ‘harder, faster, bet­ter’ expe­ri­ence!

Youth Time Global Forum Teaser

The Youth Time Global Forum in Barcelona will be a unique event, which will gather together more than 100 par­tic­i­pants from all over the world with the aim of com­ing to solu­tions for the most preva­lent youth issues.

The topic of the annual event is The New Era of Employ­ment and Edu­ca­tion: Solu­tions for Change. The topic will be rel­e­vant to the loca­tion and the cur­rent real­i­ties on the ground there. Young peo­ple who are look­ing for inspi­ra­tion and peo­ple who have inno­v­a­tive ideas on how to tackle these issues will be brought together at this event, to come to effec­tive solu­tions for change that inevitably will con­tribute to a new era of employ­ment and education.

The pro­gram will con­sist, first, of work­shops and sec­ond, of project pre­sen­ta­tion meet­ings, in which par­tic­i­pants and experts will eval­u­ate the pro­pos­als the pre­sen­ters have made. The pro­gram will also include round­table dis­cus­sions with promi­nent guests, and there will be time for social activ­i­ties, in which par­tic­i­pants will explore Barcelona and will have a chance to get to know each other
