Youth Day: Young People #ShapeCyprus


Global Shapers Nicosia Hub is part of the Global Shapers Community, a worldwide network of more than 450 Hubs around the world which are led by Young people who are exceptional in their potential, their achievements and their drive to make a contribution to their communities. Global Shapers Community with Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, is an initiative of the World Economic Forum.

Global Shapers Nicosia Hub, the first hub in Cyprus, undertakes activities to empower young people, promote active citizenship and entrepreneurship. As part of the activities of Global Shapers Nicosia, the planned Youth Day: “Young People #ShapeCyprus” event aims to include the voice of young people in the agenda of the negotiations between the leaders of both communities.

Currently, the opinion of young people is not represented in the negotiations, therefore Youth Day event is an excellent opportunity for young people to meet in one place and exchange ideas about a common future. The event will be divided in two sections: A. Panel Sessions and B. Workshops. Both panel sessions and workshops sections will be based around 3 themes: 1. Business, 2. Education, 3. Arts&Culture.

In Section A, speakers from both communities will express their views on the future of a unified Cyprus. In Section B, a workshop will be offered for each theme. Participants who attend the workshops will give feedback on how they envision a unified Cyprus in the next 10 years. All the feedback and suggestions will be presented to the leaders of both communities after the completion of the event.
