    What makes GYF special?

    Our generation was born into a world of the internet. Exposed to an amount of information that is unheard of in human history. But information does not make a human, experience and empathy does. SRMD Global Youth Festival offers that.
    • The CLICK of learning something that fits in your heart like a jigsaw piece.
    • The SIGH of contentment when your perspective shifts, slightly and effortlessly.
    • The HIGH of sharing this happiness with others.
    • The AWE of celebrating art and culture.
    • The RUSH of sports.

    It’s a festival of fully living the life you’ve been given. 

    With a deeper takeaway of how you can direct yourself and take this life back home.
