After the success of last year’s youth forum co-organized by KAS and UfM, the Euro-Mediterranean Youth Forum 2018 aims to provide young participants, coming from the Euro-Mediterranean countries, with a platform to present and discuss their perceptions and ideas, innovative practices and experiences with Digital Transformation. The overall objective of the forum is to provide recommendations to the UfM women conference’s participants regarding Digital Transformation and how youth can become involved and engaged in shaping our digital future.
