Inspiring responsible global citizens of the future
The Middle East Youth Expo 2019 is a youth-led event for 14-21 year olds in the UAE to empower, explore and inspire life goals as future ‘responsible global citizens’ of the world.
19-21 November 2019
at ADNEC, Abu Dhabi
WHAT IS A
RESPONSIBLE GLOBAL CITIZEN?
A responsible global citizen is someone who is aware of and understands the wider world – and their place in it. They take an active role in their community and work with others to make our planet more equal, fair and sustainable.
Responsible global citizenship helps young people to form their own understanding of the world and events around them, challenge ignorance and intolerance, get involved in their local, national and global communities and see that they have power to act and influence the world around them.
What’s more, responsible global citizenship inspires and informs teachers and parents, too. But above all, it shows young people that they have a voice. The world may be changing fast, but they can make a positive difference – and help build a fairer, safer and more secure world for everyone.
MEYE 2019 will give 14-21 year olds the opportunity to hear from some of the world’s most inspirational speakers who will share their personal stories of success. This is a rare opportunity for this audience to gain access to these inspirational speakers and learn that to succeed, resilience and grit is all part of the journey of achieving life’s goals.
