DHAKA has been announced as the “OIC Youth Capital 2020” marking the recognition of the remarkable achievement of Bangladesh in its youth sector. Islamic Cooperation Youth Forum (ICYF), an entity affiliated to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), made this declaration on 25 December 2019.

In the current COVID context, more than ten elaborate virtual mega-events engaging youth from across the globe have been designed for celebrating “Dhaka – OIC Youth Capital 2020”. The convergence of the yearlong events with the grand celebration of Bangabandhu Birth Centenary has amplified its significance to a great extent. Dhaka-OIC Youth Capital 2020 will kick-off with a virtual inauguration ceremony on 27th July 2020 by the Hon’ble Prime Minister of Bangladesh. This inauguration ceremony will be followed by a virtual youth summit titled “Resilient Youth Leadership Summit” on 28th July 2020, where global youth leaders will participate in various day long activities to learn and craft the strategies to build a Resilient World, particularly, in the context of this COVID-19 pandemic situation.

This programme is particularly important in the COVID-19 and post-COVID recovery and reconstruction of an equitable global economic order. Emphasizes on the leadership, vision, ideation and imagination of the youth for constructing an innovative, resilient, and inclusive narrative to ensure a leadership position in the affairs of the world. Dhaka-OIC Youth Capital 2020 believes that each new life comes with a potential and a promise. It’s in the youth that this potential or the promise is embodied in the personality that the young human being slowly acquires. This identity is impregnated with the acquired knowledge and experiences of all faiths, belief systems, ethnicities and national identities that the great human civilization has acquired over the many millennia of its existence in the universe. The more layered, textured and nuanced this identity is, the richer that life form becomes. Resilient Youth leadership Summit aims to bring together the individuals with promise for a better today and a for a brighter tomorrow.
