02-Day International Youth Development Forum

Mauritius Backbone for Leader Youth Development

Aims & Objectives

It is widely believed that modern society is in a sharp decline. The rates of crime,poverty, divorce, abortion and war are skyrocketing. There is also concern that modern science and technology is leading to a widening of the gap in living conditions and educational opportunities between prosperous first-world nations and impoverished third-world nations . This decline is alarming and nations from all over the world are trying to come up with a solid action plan in an attempt to curb down this degradation of the society.

The main aim of this forum is to expose students to the various issues which are becoming recurrent in the whole world and to promote awareness on these issues. The students are required to come up with a proper course of action in an attempt to bring down the different scourges affecting the world.

The Youth Development Forum will be used as a platform to allow students to showcase their public speaking as well as their ingenuity to come up with the best solutions for the listed problems.
