International gatherings are a great opportunity to travel, attend, meet and network with like-minded individuals. Several international agencies conduct programmes and events for youths and those working on youth-focused projects and offer financial support for eligible participants to attend and benefit from them.
We have identified 10 international summits and conferences that will be held this year and organizers are accepting applications from interested participants. As these events are organized by different organizations, the eligibility criteria to apply to participate in them are also different.
As the achievement os Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) are closely linked to youth empowerment, many agencies are focusing on bringing awareness on SDG issues and they are organizing programmes to support and train youths on the same. There are currently two worthwhile opportunities for young individuals to apply and attend international summits on Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in Germany.
If you are interested in fostering leadership, human values and a sense of social responsibility for the youth, then you should apply to attend the International summer School to be held in Shanghai where you can not only meet with experts but also build networks with like-minded people from around the world.
There are some other events for changemakers to be held across Africa and Europe, targeting young social impact entrepreneurs working for rural communities, culture, diversity, peace-building and migration.
Most of these programmes offer full funding support to cover your travel, accommodation, local transportation and registration fee when attending them. A few other events are partially funded and payment of registration fee may be requested from participants from developed countries.
