TESTIMONIALS

Al Sharq Youth is more than just a gathering of young people. It is a meeting of minds from all over the world.  It is a network which unites young people who are inspired and motivated to make a positive difference, and to take action to build a better future.

Al AnsteyFormer CEO, Al Jazeera America

Al Sharq Youth creates a space that draws on lessons of the past by incorporating our historical struggles, successes and failures, so that future generations are equipped with the tools needed to move forward with new solutions.

Malia BouattiaFormer President of the National Union of Students, UK

The Al Sharq Fellowship program is a very well structured and designed leadership program that provides direct access to learning from leading scholars in the field. The diversity in the cohort is great!

Al Sharq Youth has in a very short space of time become a truly global network of youth. The various issues the network embraces in its program of action give hope for the future of the world.

Thembisa FakudeDirector of External Relations at Al Jazeera Center for Studies

Al Sharq Forum provides the environment for young leaders to articulate and have a reason discourse. We have to remind them that they are the youth associated with idealism, with principles, with conviction, not to necessary support the excess of the present regimes. They have to have tight values and principles and understand that new technology means new knowledge and new frontiers, and at the same time it will only be effective if they retain their core values against oppression, corruption and abuse of power, because the young must affect change only when they have these core values and new understandings of knowledge and technology, only then they really can be real ambassadors for change in our societies

When you attend a conference like Al Sharq Youth Annual Conference, you are engaged and you are hearing every word and you get everything out of it. Use that as a force. Use this conferences and these meetings as a force to push yourselves forward. The real accomplishment here is the networking, not with the experts but with the youth just like you, who are coming up in the world. In 10-15 years’ time you will remember these people and they will be in high places and they will be influential people in their own way.

Al Sharq conference in Kuala Lumpur was a great experience for me to get connected with young leaders and changemakers of Asia and the MENA region. A unique opportunity to see the reality with new eyes. Thanks! Shukran! Tarima kasih! 

Nicola CerantolaFounder and director at Ecologing.

Young people have hope and optimism, that’s where Al Sharq has rightly emphasized on the FUTURE. It was a profound experience at Al Sharq Conference, meeting youth and leaders all over the world, speaking the same language, owning their future.

In the Al Sharq Fellowship Program I’ve had the chance to meet brilliant minds in a perfectly designed program to create (or discover) new narratives about one's life and the world we are living in.

They say the future belongs to those who prepare for it today. The Al Sharq Youth Annual Conference is doing just that, bringing together leaders from the East and the West to engage in critical conversations that are shaping the future for generations to come.

Dr. Bilal HassamCreative director at British Muslim TV

The Al Sharq Youth Conference is exactly what a young future change-maker needs in life, an opportunity to mingle with experienced professionals from every possible field, from technology to politics, art to business and more. I consider myself very lucky to have had the chance to listen to many passionate speakers, meet energetic youngsters and discuss with professionals from the ground. It is such platforms that make the change visible and possible like never before!

Mohamed TahiriParticipant

It's amazing to feel like travelling to many places while I am in the same hall, getting to meet some inspiring humans from the East and the West .. feeling small compared by the achievements and the experiences surrounding me. As a traveler, Al Sharq Youth Conference was a rich adventure for me, but this time by only wearing my suit and sitting in the same seat
