Fully Funded Telenor Youth Forum 2017

Young people from selected countries are welcome to apple for the fully funded Telenor Youth Conference. There will be two events in Oslo from December 8-11, 2017 and in Bangkok in May, 2018. Deadlines depend on the country of residence and are between 30 July and 15 August 2017.



The Telenor Youth Forum is a global platform that is built upon the idea of “digitalization for peace”. It provides young leaders from around the world with an arena to come together to tackle global, social challenges.

The young people in attendance will form teams and will spend their first days together, developing a plan for creating dialogue, engagement, and potential solutions, using digital technology, for how social challenges can be addressed. The journey will continue virtually after the participants leave Oslo, and then participants will meet again in Bangkok, where they will continue working.
