We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.
Franklin D. Roosevelt uttered those words way back in the 1930s but never have they sounded as true as they do now. As India stands on the precipice of the elusive superpower status, it is upto us youngsters to usher in change and steer the nation towards a secure future. All change begins with an idea. The Youth Speak Forum was created with the motive to nurture this very idea and provide it a platform to prosper.
The Youth Speak Forum or YSF, pioneered by AIESEC, is a premise event that brings together young as well as senior leaders under one banner to engage in insightful dialog, inculcate new perspectives and inspire conversations around the pressing global issues and the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The forum aims to generate a nurturing environment for cross pollination of ideas from people of diverse backgrounds. It aims to activate the latent leadership potential in youth by inspiring them to form opinions, engaging them with powerful speakers and enabling them to take action by connecting them with resources.
The Youth Speak Forum balances itself on 3 major ideals, namely, Inspiration, Engagement and Action. Inspiration stems from the freedom to speak, opinionate and challenge perspectives. The forum aims to change mindsets by enacting workshops and conducting power talks. It aims to open up the minds of the young to spark new innovations and revolutionize old ideas. To create lasting impact, a mixture of various strengths and capabilities need to be utilized. The speakers as well as delegates cut across all walks of life form a rich environment infused with learning. The forum also gives its delegates the chance to pitch their projects and form a sense of ownership and commitment towards them. All in all the Youth Speak Forum successfully incites positive change in people as well as ensures a better future for our youth.
