The seminar was attended by multinational youth leaders from several countries, including Morocco, Algeria, Lebanon, India, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Ecuador, Armenia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Costa Rica, Hungary, Chad, Sudan, South Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Gambia, Tunisia, Guinea, Cote d'Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Egypt, among the alumni and members of the movement, along with Hassan Ghazaly, founder of the Nasser International Youth Movement, and the Hungarian leader Istvan Dõbrei, an expert in international trade relations and a member of the movement.
During the seminar, Ghazaly highlighted his unlimited support for the great efforts made by the movement's members for four years in serving and developing their societies in several areas such as education, training, and women empowerment economically as well as their efforts in the fields of social justice, climate education, and peacebuilding.
Moreover, Ghazaly asserted that Nasser Youth Movement has benefited over four years almost 9,500 young men and women through over 65 national branches in five continents (Africa, Asia, Latin America, Aruba, and Australia). He noted that the movement's coordinators were able to launch about 49 development programs and projects in several societies, in addition to their success in establishing networks with local and international institutions and civil society organizations, thus achieving the seventeenth goal of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
The Nasser International Youth Movement was established in July 2019 aiming to strengthen historical ties and support bilateral relations between Egypt and the rest of the brotherly and friendly countries, in addition to introducing development agendas and regional and international agreements at the grassroots level such as the Free Trade Agreement, Ghazaly said.
The movement organized the Nasser Fellowship for International Leadership, which is held under the auspices of President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi.
The fellowship aims to popularise the authentic Egyptian experience in national institution-building and create a new generation of transformational young African leaders with a vision that aligns with the Egyptian presidency of the African Union in serving the goals of African unity through integration, training, capacity building, and the development of strategic visions, as well as organising meetings of the most influential young leaders at the continental level.
