Participants will get a chance to work with business leaders and government officials and compete for a prestigious Youth Leadership and Innovation Award for Migration. The deadline is on 30 September 2020.

The annual Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD) summit has opened its doors to youth representatives. This year, participants of the youth forum will get a chance to collaborate with government officials, mayors, business leaders, and civil society stakeholders to discuss common migration policy priorities and actions.

The Youth Forum will be a peer-to-peer space to learn about the importance of the GFMD and how to contribute to it effectively. The Forum will be held right before the XIII Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD) Summit. If the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic allows it will be in person in January 2021 in the UAE. If not, the Youth Forum will be carried out virtually. Additionally, this year’s Youth Leadership and Innovation Award for Migration will showcase existing initiatives aiming to empower and improve the living conditions of young people. Young entrepreneurs, leaders, youth-led start-ups and organizations are invited to apply. Merit and need-based scholarships will be provided to the participants to help cover flights and/or accommodation.

The deadline is on 30 September 2020.
