World Youth Summit 2019
World Youth Summit is a three days United Nations simulation for international students held biannually in any part of the globe.
It will be hosted by the South African BRICS Youth Association (SABYA). SABYA serve as a bridge between young people and the wider BRICS (the grouping of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) community ranging from academics, researchers, foreign diplomatic missions, foreign ministries, government institutions and respective youth agencies.
This association aims to facilitate people-to-people diplomacy among the BRICS countries, identify areas of best practice, bring together entrepreneurs for peer learning and commission research on relevant themes.
The first edition of the World Youth Summit was held in the Turkish Republic of North Cyprus. During these days, participants or delegates engaged themselves into the Dynamics of international relations by assuming the roles of world leaders and influential decision-makers.
The 2nd edition will be held in South Africa, Johannesburg. A particular focus was given to the SDG 4 “Quality Education”, thus this will also be one of the focus areas of the second edition in Johannesburg.
It is an opportunity for delegates to improve their skills in many domains such as teamwork, negotiation, leadership, public speaking and many others.
WYS believe in a better world of tomorrow through youth. For that reason, the delegates are the mains actors and they are expected to think ambitiously and critically. How can youth affect change in the community? What are the chances for young people to succeed through education, agriculture, and technology?
