Telenor Youth Forum 2018 for Young Leaders to develop digital solutions to reduce inequalities

Deadline: Various

The Telenor Youth Forum 2018 is organized in collaboration with the Nobel Peace to bring together young leaders from around the world to develop digital solutions that reduce inequalities and empower societies.

It is a year-long program that challenges young leaders to tackle big, social issues.

This event aims to help transform the world we live in by tackling social challenges through digital solutions.

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.

The Exhibition will be showcased at the Nobel Peace Center as well as online.

The Telenor Youth Forum is a global platform that is built upon the idea of bright minds working together to reduce inequalities.

It provides these young leaders from around the world with an arena to 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 particular inequality can be addressed.

The program will conclude in Bangkok, in May, where they will present their final projects and unveil a digital exhibition completed in cooperation with the Nobel Peace Center.

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.
