International Development Youth Forum 2017 in Tokyo, Japan

Funded International Youth Development Forum in Japan

Program Date: 11th-18th March, 2018

Venue: Tokyo

IDYF 2018 addresses the issues of co-existence between human and technology, under our philosophy of “Design Our Future.” We cannot live without technology in the contemporary world. Technology are everywhere – medical care, healthcare and welfare, manufacturing, transportation, communications, education, commerce, governance – every corner of the society. The use and prevalence of technology has greatly enhanced quality of life and continuously made life comfortable for us to lead.

On the other hand, there are some gloomy statements such as “Machines are robbing human being of their job” or “AI or Robots have riots and rebel against humans and our civilisation will comes to an end.” This indicates that we might need to hold a doubt about the absolute utility of technology.

IDYF 2018 offers a dedicated place for youth, regardless of the place of birth or domicile, to absorb themselves in an intense and exciting discussions. We guarantee that such an experience is enlightening and inspiring, shaping the participants into the leaders in the next generations.

In 2017, the highly motivated and qualified 42 participants from 35 countries/regions came to Tokyo, selected out of as many as 3212 applicants from 149 countries/regions. Aside from discussion among the participants, we invited professionals from various fields to provide profoundly valuable talks for them and arrange the environment where future leaders in the field of international development can

Beyond the great success in 2017, IDYF 2018 will exceed the previous forum by welcoming as many highly passionate youth, who are willing to “design our future” with us in Tokyo, Japan.
