Telenor Youth Forum 2018
Do you want to be part of a year-long program that challenges young leaders to tackle big, social issues?
In collaboration with the Nobel Peace, the Telenor Youth Forum brings together young leaders from around the world to develop digital solutions that reduce inequalities and empower societies.
With physical gatherings in Oslo and in Bangkok, the Telenor Youth Forum 2018 is a six-month-long programme that is run in collaboration with the Nobel Peace Center (NPC).
This event aims to help transform the world we live in by tackling social challenges through digital solutions.
Bright minds, reducing inequalities
The selected TYF delegates will commit to the programme for six months, over the course of which they will work as a team to create dialogue and engagement around a social challenge.
They will work in collaboration with the overall aim to foster understanding, prosperity and ultimately, peace.
With young and promising delegates recruited from our markets, #TYF is a journey that starts in Oslo, during the Nobel Peace Prize events in December 2018.
It will continue through the year, with a second gathering in Bangkok, where the youth will come together once again to continue creating momentum around their social challenge.
The culmination of this six-months-long commitment will be the unveiling of a digital exhibition, in collaboration with the Nobel Peace Center, documenting the work of the teams, the social challenges faced and the progress made.
*Your estimated time commitment is approximately 2 hours per week outside of the Oslo and Bangkok events.
As a selected Telenor Youth Forum 2018 delegate, you will attend the kick-off event in Oslo, from December 8-11, 2018.
You will work virtually with team members on a project in 2019, and you will meet up again in Bangkok in May 2019.
Your goal is to make progress on your project and create a digital exhibition (about your social challenge) that will go live during the Bangkok event. Follow us here for a behind-the-scenes look at some of the highlights of the Telenor Youth Forum.
