Fully Funded Telenor Youth Forum 2017
The Telenor Youth Forum is a global platform that is built upon the idea of “digitalization for peace”. It provides these young leaders from around the world with an arena to come together and tackle global, social challenges. The journey begins in Oslo, in December, during the week of the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony. The youth will form teams, with each team dedicated to a social challenge. They will spend their first days together, developing a plan for creating dialogue, engagement and potentially a solution, using digital technology, for how that challenge can be addressed.
The journey continues virtually after leaving Oslo, with teams carrying out their plans from their home countries. They meet again in Bangkok, where they will continue working with the Nobel Peace Center and begin the process of creating digital exhibitions about their projects.
The young leaders attending the Telenor Youth Forum come from very different places, but they are united in their passion to foster understanding, prosperity and ultimately peace.
As a selected Telenor Youth Forum delegate you will attend the kick-off event in Oslo, from December 8-11, 2017. You will work virtually with team members on a project in 2018, and you will meet up again in Bangkok in May 2018. Your goal is to make progress on your project and create a digital exhibition (about your social challenge) that will go live in October 2018.
