International Youth Summer School in Sichuan 2019
Youth Time International Movement welcomes the global youth community to the ninth edition of the International Youth Summer School to be held in capital of southwestern China's Sichuan province, Chengdu scheduled for July 7th – 12th, 2019.
The world has never been connected more tightly than now. For young, ambitious international entrepreneurs, especially those who just start up their business career from the very beginning, following up for the global trend of startup innovation and capital investment is of great importance. Among all the capricious economic trends in the world, the Eurasia-related investment is definitely a predictable indication. According to statistics, nearly half of the proposed infrastructure in Eurasia is estimated to provide significant gains to investors, the share of projects that provide gains increases to almost two-thirds.
Meanwhile, to understand the youth responsibility in such kinds of pan-regional development is also important. Rather than pursuing savage economic development that benefits only the rich ends of investment, every responsible global citizen will “share common responsibility for common prosperity” by hopping on the global development express.
Therefore, we chose the main topic of the Summer School as ‘’Bridge Capital and Technology: Corporations along Silk Road, Innovation in Entrepreneurship’’. At the event young entrepreneurs from around the world will explore how global markets can help them to achieve success. Young professionals, looking to expand internationally, will get the chance to take part in a unique, engaging and interactive program, guided by world class experts.
The event will give a unique insight as to the role of youth specifically amongst the framework; empowering the international youth community to take advantage of the opportunities that lie waiting for them along silk road regions, specifically Asia, Europe, the Persian Gulf and East Africa.
In 2019 the Belt and Road Initiative is a hot topic in the world of business. However most discussions are focused on corporations and international relationship related areas, very few try to explore the role of youth. Therefore, we invite you to get a first hand experience with the initiative and to find your own way to engage in this project that has the potential to transform the Eurasian zone into an enticing and robust hub for startups and young entrepreneurs.
This year’s International Youth Summer School is co-organized by the Soong Ching Ling Foundation.
