Youth Time Global Forum 2015 has been wrapped up. Over the course of three days, lots of interesting discussions and gatherings occurred. People from all around the world participated and exchanged ideas, but the main attraction of the forum was the projects competition. 16 youth initiatives “batteld” for the main prize of the forum - a realization grant. And the winner was fabulous Swekshya Neupane from Nepal thanks to her very important social project "Health for female community leaders". Swekshya is planning to launch a six-month-long educational project for 200 hundred women in Nepalese rural areas. However, it's better to allow Ms Neupane to explain the concept behind her winning project.

Thank you everyone for watch the live stream of #YTGlobal 2015. Watch all videos from two days of our intense work in Barcelona.

#YTGlobal is about to start and this is the last pre-event interview that we would like to share with you. Ekkehard Ernst is a prominent expert in the field of labour market. Besides giving a speech during "Challenging Youth Unemployment" plenary session, Mr Ernst is also an expert for employment projects presentations. For those of you who can’t join us in Barcelona, you can watch Mr Ernst's speech during our live stream tomorrow from 9:30 to 11:00 (CET).

Writing an application is not an easy task. Mostly because you don’t know what the person that is going to take your application in to consideration exactly is looking for. As Youth Time is an social organisation that aims to help young people, here an overview of the main things our reviewers will be looking for.

This week we are glad to present to you the next speaker at #YT Global Mr. Dimitris Psarrakis. YT sophomores know him from this year's Summer School, where he held a workshop on Daily Diplomacy.  This time his role will be completely different. You will meet him on the second day of the Forum – Mr. Psarrakis will give a speech during the plenary session on "Challenging Youth Unemployment".  Forum attendees will have the unique opportunity to get familiar with the EU policies that are striving to reduce youth unemployment from first-hand.

The win­ning social project “Health For Female Com­mu­nity Lead­ers” cre­ated and pre­sented by the recent med­i­cine grad­u­ate from Nepal Swek­shya Neupane.

Happy Grandma

Happy Granma project inspired by Renu Shakya (Nepal) and sup­ported by Loescher Fam­ily has got off to a good start.
