The Telenor Youth Forum is a coveted global platform that is established on the ideology of “digitization for peace”. This forum will provide young leaders from around the world the opportunity to come together and tackle global and social challenges. The journey will begin in Oslo, in December, during the week of the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony. Selected youth participants will form teams, with each team dedicated to a social challenge. They will spend their first days together, developing a plan for creating dialogue, engagement and potentially a solution, using digital technology, for how that challenge can be addressed.
