Peace Child International, E-Gençlik Association and the Turkish Ministry of Education announce the:

5th World Youth Congress, open for applications!
Peace Child International and E-Genclik Association invite young activists (entrylevel, intermediate and veteran), artists, educators, journalists and entrepreneurs to apply to participate in the 5th World Youth Congress (WYC). The congress will take place from the 31st July until the 13th August 2010 in Istanbul, Turkiye, the 2010 European Capital of Culture. The special theme of the Istanbul Congress is “Imece” – the Turkish tradition of collaborative solidarity. The 5th WYC will gather some of the world’s most brilliant young leaders and activists to reflect on what are the most effective roles young people can play in poverty reduction and development. They will engage with experienced decision-makers and development professionals, in the spirit of “Imece”, to discuss, plan and take action on global issues. Like the previous congresses held in Hawai’I (1999), Morocco (2003), Scotland (2005) and Canada (2008); the 5th WYC will offer delegates the opportunity to contribute to plenary and regional meetings, skills workshops, cultural events, exhibitions and of course, local action projects – which will take delegates to villages and urban neighbourhoods across Turkiye to work together with local youth and communities. The congress is open to all young people – from whatever background, organisation, or interest. This 5th World Youth Congress will host 1,000 young people aged 15-30. Participants will have the opportunity to socialise, network, share their experiences and cultures, and make life-long friends. Applications are currently open and the deadline is the 31st January 2010. For the application process, and for more information, log onto www.turkiye2010.org or contact: Ezgi Özer, Congress Liaison Officer at wyc@peacechild.org.
