DEADLINE: March 5, 2017
Applications are invited for the The South Asian Youth Conference 2017 in Kabul, Afghanistan. SAYC was born out of a vision for a peaceful South Asia, led by young leaders. It is a journey of building capacity, conversations and (most importantly) connections between youth across borders.
Over the years, SAYC is becoming a family of leaders who can decisively contribute to shaping the future of South Asia. After starting in 2011 (Bangalore), we travelled to Islamabad (2012), Khatmandu (2013), Online (2014 and 16) and Colombo (2015).
And now, the movement comes to Afghanistan!
South Asian Youth Conference (SAYC) 2017, Kabul will highlight the shared interests of youth across South Asian countries in art and culture, gender mainstreaming and its interpretations in South Asian context, and violence and youth in South Asia to build a more peaceful and culturally diverse region and promote economically strong ties among South Asian countries.
