Anniversary of Youth Time
Youth Time International Movement was officially founded on December 11, 2010, in Prague. The president of the movement, Julia Kinas, explained that the name of the movement is very symbolic and refers to the years of the youth as the happiest and most active period of human life.
Youth Time International Movement should use their unique and precious time of youth properly in order to do their best for their own future and the future of older and younger generations.
The idea of creating Youth Time International Movement was born on October 4, 2010, on the Island of Rhodes in Greece, where 150 young people came from 34 different countries to attend the first Rhodes Youth Forum.
During the forum, participants discussed questions concerning everyday life which young people often do not ponder: “How do young people see their future? What differences exist in the world views of young people from different countries and regions of the world?
Youth Time International Movement is made by youth for youth! The whole manifesto of the Movement can be found here.

Youth Time International Movement During the Crisis
During the current crisis, Movement didn’t stop to educate people all over the globe, to share positive thinking, to inspire with sharing stories about successful projects from previous events.
Even if the crisis-affected so many jobs, businesses, educations, life, all our reality in general, YT Movement knows that the most important thing is the ability to adapt. And here we go, all of us are adapting every day, some of easier, some of us harder, but we still need to keep going.
The result of the Movement’s approach is the series of Webinars “The Future Skills for Workplace Sustainability” which is launching every Wednesday at 2 PM, Central European Time. Participants can register using this link.
This series of webinars would be suited to all from all backgrounds. If you have a business or organisation or looking to start one, this needs to be heard to enhance your chances of sustainability.
If you are not an entrepreneur, then this webinar will still benefit you to give awareness of something you may not realise is going on, and help gives you inspiration of how to be more mindful.
As we all could see during this 2020 year, the world is changing rapidly, every day and quicker than we would ever think. Don’t let all changes happening without your intervention. Let’s make all changes together.
Youth Time International Movement is inviting all people to join their future events, to meet new people, and to make this world-changing with us. As we already said- From youth by youth!
