The Youth Majlis

KSA’s Misk Foundation brings Youth Majlis back to WEF Davos

DAVOS, January 16, 2023

Mohammed bin Salman Foundation, ‘Misk’, a non-profit organisation established by Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz, is bringing the Youth Majlis back to the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland.
 
One of the only youth-focused pavilions at the Swiss alpine destination, Misk will unite delegates under the theme of Generation Transformation – a mindset that harnesses the unique strengths of all generations to create lasting positive change.
 
The Youth Majlis will provide a platform for forward-looking dialogue, serving as a catalyst to explore collaborative solutions to solve some of the world's most pressing issues – from inclusive economic growth to ambitious climate action.
 
Power of youth
“In a world that is becoming increasingly fragmented, it’s more important than ever to find ways to cooperate, work together and harness the power of youth,” said Omar Najjar, Chief Programme Officer, Misk Foundation. 
 
“Our decision to bring the Youth Majlis back to the World Economic Forum is a powerful step in this direction, placing young people at the heart of the global conversation and empowering them to take bold action for a better future.”
 
More than 35 global leaders and decision makers from the US, China, Singapore, South Africa, India, Egypt, Indonesia and Saudi Arabia will convene at the Youth Majlis to promote a revamped, youth-focused approach to global collaboration.
 
Sustainable future
The return of the Youth Majlis is also an important step toward advancing Saudi Arabia's vision for a more prosperous and sustainable future. It comes after Misk’s Youth Majlis welcomed more than 1,700 visitors from 42 countries, 14 heads of state and ministers, 200 VIP guests, and 25 speakers during the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in 2022.
