    Why should I come for the GYF 2022

    The youth today were 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.

    The Global Youth Festival offers that.

    It is the human experience condensed into a few days.

    The one you’ve missed since the pandemic.

    The one you get when you talk instead of typing.

    When you embrace instead of double-tapping.

    It is the empathy that emerges when you open yourself to yourself, without filters.

    • 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.
