International Youth ConferenceNovember 16–19, Gothenburg, Sweden

We will give the conference participants one overall assignments: to develop their best arguments for why an open and democratic society provides the most desirable conditions that promotes a humane development of the world, and to come up with tangible proposals on how an open democratic society could be sustained in challenging times.

Most of the time, the youths will hold their own meetings, guided by four moderators: getting to know each other, meeting specially invited inspirational lecturers and commentators, and working on their assignment.

Ending the last conference day, the youth will launch a preliminary report, and convey the gist of their proposals through slide-showed live presentations in two distinguished venues: International IDEA 25th Anniversary Stockholm Webinar Democracy for a Sustainable Future. Discussing the nexus between democracy, youth and climate change, and Gothenburg Democracy Day 2020 Futures of Democracies: The Power of Citizens. Facts, Stories, Visions.
