Rhodes Youth Forum 2013

The Rhodes Youth Forum IV Annual Session

Mod­ern Youth Soci­ety: How to Build and Be Involved?

In Sep­tem­ber 2013 the Rhodes Youth Forum will gather together more than 100 young peo­ple who are prone towards respon­si­bil­ity and con­struc­tive behav­ior in the cur­rent changes the con­tem­po­rary world is under­go­ing. Debates with high level experts from var­i­ous fields will touch on ways to keep a cul­tural iden­tity in a mul­ti­cul­tural soci­ety, to pre­serve tra­di­tional and non-​material val­ues, to actively par­tic­i­pate in pub­lic and social life. The Forum is an attempt to think about global chal­lenges by putting a young per­son in the cen­ter of all our activities.

The orga­nizer of the RYF – the Inter­na­tional Youth Time Move­ment – unites young lead­ers who show strong proac­tive behav­ior per­fectly in line with the motto ‘act­ing not only in words but in deeds’. As a result, the full devel­op­ment and pro­fes­sional pre­sen­ta­tion of the project is the key con­di­tion for par­tic­i­pa­tion. Young lead­ers will get the oppor­tu­nity to be sup­ported by the Rhodes Youth Forum part­ners. The Youth Time Intel­lec­tual Сlub will pro­vide the most viable projects with pro­fes­sional and expert consulting.

Fields of projects:

  1. Media and Inter­net Projects
  2. Social and Vol­un­teer­ing Projects
  3. Infra­struc­ture and Logis­tic Projects
  4. Preser­va­tion of the Cul­tural Iden­tity and Tra­di­tional Val­ues in a Global World
