According to Al-Ahram Arabic news website, the WYF's 2018 agenda includes various topics which reflect the the visions and aspirations of the world’s youth.
The forum will also allow participants to exchange their experiences in different fields, including development and innovation.
WYF 2018 is held under the umbrella of the country’s National Academy for Youth Training and Empowerment, established in 2017.
Several models, including a simulation of the Arab African Summit, will also be held on the sidelines of the forum.
WYF is held under the auspices of Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, who agreed in November during a peace marathon that the forum would be held annually.
Last year, the WYF, which was held for the first time in the Egyptian resort, attracted thousands of participants worldwide, with official delegations from several states, as well as youth representatives from various countries taking part.
The forum identifies itself as one “built by promising youth that sends a message of peace, prosperity, harmony and progress to the entire world.”
November 2017’s forum was first announced during the country’s National Youth Conference in Alexandria in July 2017, which was also attended by El-Sisi.
