By Students - For Students
The Youth Forum Switzerland (YFS) is the creation of a group of globally engaged high school students from the International School of Zug and Luzern, who attended the Open Forum Davos in January 2017. Their transformative experience inspired them to organize an event in the same spirit, which will give youth a voice in global issues in central Switzerland.
Funded by contributions from parents, teachers and other community members to our non-profit school, YFS 2018 will run as a daylong symposium comprising panel discussions, talks, and interactive activities centered around our theme: Embracing Diversity – Empowering Lives.
Over 400 students representing nearly 70 countries, from local and international schools across our region are planned to attend this event and hear from over 20 speakers from various countries around the world.
