The 30th International Youth Forum in Seoul, South Korea (Fully Funded)

The first event, which was called "International Peace Camp" was held in 1990 to provide a venue for dialogue among youths who played a major role in world peace in order to fulfill the role of the internationally elevated Republic of Korea.
Every year, the event was held in cooperation with international organizations to invite youths from around the world to discuss international issues for world peace and development.

From 2018, in order to expand quantitative and qualitative interaction among the youth, Asia Youth Camp and International Youth Forum have merged with each other 

  • To increase youth’s understanding of global issues, offering an opportunity to tackle them and to find alternative ways or solutions.
  • To improve cooperation and enhance mutual understanding among youths across cultures and nationalities.
