Fully Funded Commonwealth Youth Dialogue Conference 2019 is to going be organized in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The applications are now open for a four-day Commonwealth Youth Dialogue Conference: Youth Workshop on International Peace and Security and Building Community Resilience from the Ground Up. The Commonwealth Secretariat and the Royal Commonwealth Society are jointly hosting this conference. The conference aims to build the capacity of emerging young leaders to bridge communities, lead action and prevent violent extremism through dialogue.
Mainly, the conference will enable you to take part in interactive workshops on community cohesion, active citizenship, leadership, digital literacy as well as preventing violent extremism. The event also includes a day-long simulation of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM). During the simulation, debates will focus on international peace and security. Furthermore, it will enable young people to better understand social change through democratic institutions and appreciate the views of others locally and globally. Moreover, you will gain a better understanding of a role as actors to prevent and counter violent extremism through informal and creative means. In addition, the conference will help you to deliver future youth-led activities for your peers to help counter violent radicalisation. Also, it will empower the attending young people to be more knowledgeable, concerned and active citizens.
This programme contributes to building the capacity of would-be young advocates. Above all, the organizers will fund all expenses including travel as well as accommodation.
