Theme: “Youth Creativity for Global Solutions”
We expect to receive creative short films that reflect from youth perspective the social problems prioritized (but not limited) as “refugees”, “youth participation” and “globalization and ethical challenges”.
ABOUT “OIC YOUTH CAPITAL”
The youth institutions of more than 60 countries, including the OIC Member States and non-Member States with Muslim minority communities as well as 7 international youth organizations that are members to the Islamic Conference Youth Forum for Dialogue and Cooperation (ICYF-DC, an international institution affiliated to the OIC) nominated Istanbul to host the 1st OIC Youth Capital for 2015-2016. The Programme was approved by the OIC Member States and official partners of ICYF-DC in realization of the Programme are Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality and the Ministry of Youth and Sport of the Republic of Turkey.
The program containing various youth events and activities throughout a year in Istanbul aims:
- to promote youth issues in the OIC geography and beyond,
- to encourage the implementation of new ideas and innovative projects, with regard to the active participation of young people in society
