A forum where inspiration and collaboration convert to action
YouthSpeak Forum is an event that takes place in multiple locations around the world, bringing top young leaders together with business leaders, thought leaders and experts for a conversation around pressing global issues.
The forum aims to create an environment where people from diverse backgrounds can cross-pollinate ideas, share insights and gain new perspectives to create actionable outcomes to push the world forward.
We make this happen by taking our delegates through the unique and interactive framework of Inspire, Engage and Act.
Youthspeak Forum 2017 is focused on what moves a lot of students and young people in Belgium and Luxembourg; the quality of higher education and how it could be more effective at meeting the needs of students and employers. By closely assessing how industry, infrastructures and innovation can better support the development of youth potential in and out of the workplace and how to ensure a good transition from education to employment.
We start with the YouthSpeak Survey, which will help us to know and be aware what really matters to youth in Belgium
YouthSpeak Insights will come from the YouthSpeak Survey, and will define the main topics we should have as themes for our YouthSpeak Forums
The main themes of the YouthSpeak Forum will be defined by the YouthSpeak Insights and will shape the projects we want to create as a call to action after the forum
We will look for the companies and organizations willing to sponsor AIESEC projects that will be created during the action space and executed after the YouthSpeak Forum
To create change, it must also change mindsets. Every YouthSpeak Forum is arranged to inspire the delegates through experiential learning, power talks and keynote speakers. We want to open the minds of delegates to think differently and spark new innovations.
Creating a positive impact requires different strengths and capabilities. By bringing together people from diverse backgrounds across sectors and geographies, we form a rich learning environment where speakers from varying organizations bring challenging perspectives and help spark opinions from the delegates.
Taking action is the most important part. As inspiration and engagement occurs throughout the day, we want to ensure that delegates are given the chance to group together and form the sense of ownership and commitment towards the ideas and projects they pitch. We connect resources and networks with the projects to enable a real impact to occur.
