The Youth and Society Administration at the Ministry of Education of the State of Israel is pleased to invite you to participate in the forthcoming International Youth Conference "Take the Leadership" to be held on 20-23 November 2011 in Jerusalem, Israel, as part of the 2011 UNESCO International Year of Youth.
The theme of the conference is based on Janusz Korczak's quote: "Children are not the people of tomorrow, but people today. They are entitled to be taken seriously. They have a right to be treated by adults with tenderness and respect, as equals. They should be allowed to grow into whoever they were meant to be - The unknown person inside each of them is the hope for the future."
We would be pleased to host a delegation of 3-4 persons aged 17-22, representing your country in the conference. Every delegation should be accompanied by an adult.
The focus of the conference will be on: promoting youth leadership and volunteer activities;
establishing of the platform for dialogue between youth as the potential future leaders and
preparing them to act as good will ambassadors of their countries, providing a meeting point for
youth from culturally diverse communities, living in harmony and peaceful coexistence.
The conference will be held in English, and the organizers will cover the accommodation expenses of the participants during their stay in Israel. Travel expenses are to be provided by the participants themselves. The conference will include key-note speakers, round-table discussions, a poster exhibition of each participant country's youth programs, and study tours. Participants are invited to bring their national costumes, national flag and other national and folklore items.
