CAIRO – 4 November 2017: Emmy and Academy Award-winning actress Helen Hunt will participate in Egypt’s first World Youth Forum (WYF), which kicked off on Saturday in Sharm el Sheikh city under the auspice of President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi.
The WFY organizers send their gratitude to the American actress to be one of the international participants in the opening ceremony due to on Sunday.
Hundreds of young people from all over the world flocked to Sharm El-Sheikh where the WYF will convene under the theme “We Need to Talk.”
The forum will bring together 3,000 young people, represented by 60 delegations from across the world, in an effort to explore key issues facing young people and determine their role in implementing global development goals and combating terrorism.
The idea to hold an international youth conference in Egypt came during the third National Conference of Youth (NYC) in Ismailya. In July, Sisi announced the WYF in Sharm El-Sheikh at the fourth NYC in Alexandria.
The seven-day gathering will witness the participation of official youth representatives over 18 years old, leaders of various youth networks, head of states, media figures and around 250 young Egyptian expats.
