Next year's World Council will provide a unique opportunity to celebrate the YMCA Movement's life and work in 124 countries. It will engage participants in! dialogue and sharing on some of the most critical challenges within and outside the Movement.
Prior to the World Council Meeting, there will be a 3-day International Youth Forum. The Youth Forum aims to empower young men and women to advocate on global issues that impact their lives and their communities. It also provides training to prepare youth delegates for active participation at the World Council. New communications technology will be leveraged to enable young people across the world that could not come to Hong Kong to input into the discussions with youth delegates in Hong Kong.
Further information on World Council 2010 including programme details, fees and registration form will be communicated to YMCA National Movements in early July this year. http://www.ymca.int/14.0.html
