A very inspirational song sung by Adnan from The Soch Band on a show on Geo.TV – he beautifully conveys the prevalent conditions in Pakistan and urges the youth to rise up for Pakistan, one does enjoy that passion with which he sings the song, each word carrying an inspirational message for the youth of Pakistan
International Youth Conference & Festival is to be held in Islamabad from 6th-9th of December which will attract students from around the globe. The four day conference will give an opportunity to students from around the world to interact and learn from each other experiences. The conference has been organized by Miradore Productions and Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, in partnership with Khudi Pakistan and Ministry of Youth Affairs is also supported by Google, Youtube and NCHD and Ministry for Women Development. Students from US, UK, Turkey, Somalia, Malaysia, Thailand, Bangladesh and Scotland are expected to come to Islamabad to attend the event.
The focus of the event is to highlight the role of youth in peace building and to bridge cultural, regional and religious gaps. Participants will also discuss ways to work for women empowerment, disaster management and use of modern social networking tools to help in these areas.
I believe this to be a great initiative by the organizers to bring various students from around the world and allow them to share their opinions engaging in dialogue, literally investing in the future. I wish the attendees an amazing conference
