More than 9,200 youths from around the world have registered to participate in the Doha Muslim Youth Forum from July 7 to 11, in connection with ‘Doha – The Capital of Islamic Youth 2019’.
The forum will be held under the theme ‘Youth is the power of the nation’.
The event will be organised in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture and Sports and the Islamic Cooperation Youth Forum (ICYF) of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation under the supervision of the Qatar Center for Cultural and Heritage Events.
The forum is part of several events being organised by Qatar within the activities of ‘Doha – The Capital of Islamic Youth 2019’ to enable youth to discuss development issues and participate in the formulation and implementation of projects.
The event aims to present and discuss issues related to youth as a key driver in building future development strategies, developing the capacities of young people to face the challenges of civilisation and development, and benefiting from modern means of communication in promoting the values of citizenship.
The forum will include several workshops that discuss the role of young people in establishing a culture of good governance; management of human and financial resources in youth institutions; integrity and promotion of culture; and enhancing the culture of renouncing corruption.
The event will be accompanied by a training course on the model of the Islamic Cooperation Organization and the rules and procedures of the model of Islamic cooperation.
The forum will feature four simulation sessions. The first three sessions revolve around good governance and transparency among young people; youth and sustainable development; and youth and social media. The fourth simulation session will include drafting decisions and approvals.
The event will also have two sessions to simulate the Islamic Summit. The first will adopt draft resolutions while the second will be limited to the adoption and announcement of the resolutions.
A number of visits will be organised for participants to learn about Qatar and its richness in various fields in order to discover Qatari culture and its youth’s empowerment.
To participate in the forum, the participant should be between 18 and 30 years old.
The participants should be from the OIC Member States or representatives of an Islamic community and must submit a certificate of good conduct.
The registration and CV forms will be studied by a specialised committee, which will select 90 participants from participating countries according to objective criteria.
The registration form, CV and the required information should be attached through the website of Doha – The Capital of Islamic Youth: https://www.dohaiyc.qa. The selected participants will receive confirmation of participation through their e-mail.
The Ministry of Culture and Sports has received more than 1,700 inquiries, ideas and observations from the youth around the world, which reflects the interest of young people in participating in the Islamic Cooperation Forum.
The organising committee will honour the outstanding youth at the closing ceremony in recognition of their participation through time commitment, collaboration with colleagues, active participation, knowledge of the workshop, creativity and innovation.
The committee will evaluate all participants and select the candidates to win the Youth Excellence Award.
The first three boys and first three girls will be announced on the website of ‘Doha – The Capital of Islamic Youth 2019’ on July 31.
