CAIRO – 6 November 2017: The second day of the World Youth Forum kicks off Monday, with a number of panels set to highlight global youth issues in thorough discussions.

The first session titled “Differences Among Cultures and Civilizations: Conflict or Integration?” is held at the main hall, and attended by President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi and a number of high-level officials from around the world.

On the second day, participants were seen in queues outside different halls at the summit held in Sharm El-Sheikh resort in South Sinai.

Sunday witnessed the opening ceremony of the first edition of the World Youth Forum under the theme “We Need To Talk,” where thousands of international delegations participated and shared stories of their success and grief.

A number of international youth took to the floor in the opening session on Sunday, accompanied by the Oscar-winning actress Helen Hunt, who said that “Egypt is the cradle of civilization and its mother.”

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 that the WYF would be held 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 of age, leaders of various youth networks, heads of state, media figures and around 250 young Egyptian expats.
