September 30th – October 2nd  2016  /  Trieste  (Italy)

World  Youth  Forum  “Right to dialogue” IX edition Debates. Cultural and artistic events. Friendship

The Forum 2016 focuses on the topic “Work/labor”, considered from different points of view: in the economic perspective, as a function of the productive processes; in the cultural perspective, as a function of a specific way to conceive such processes; finally as human labor: the worker beyond the work. “The work and the city” refers to the general frame of the debate if by “city/citizenship” we mean the whole of the relations between the subjects and the spaces they inhabit (also the work spaces), their potentialities of recognition, rights, values, histories, memories, identities, communities.

Participation process

The present call is addressed to young adults aged 18 to 35, without distinction as to nationality.

The Forum works will be conducted both in Italian and in English; simultaneous translation from/to both languages will be provided.

Those who are interested in taking part to the Forum must apply by filling and submitting the online form available on the organization’s website ( For submissions’ deadlines, please check the following paragraphs.

Those interested may apply either as speakers or as auditors.


1. Speakers

While filling the application form, those who are interested in applying as speakers must provide a title and an abstract for the paper that, if selected, they’ll have to eventually develop, in order to present it on the Forum. Thus they must fill all the form’s fields, including n. 15 (paper’s title) and n. 16 (paper’s abstract).

Application forms must be submitted by Sunday, July 10 2016, 11.59 pm (CET). The organizers don’t guarantee that later applications will be taken into consideration.The organization will disclose the selection’s results by July 25, 2016.


The selection of speakers will be based upon the assessment of the abstracts (quality level, originality, adherence to the Forum’s theme), the applicants’ profiles, the available budget. Therefore the organization will accept a number of participants based on the actual financial availability, thus reserving the right of rejecting exceeding requests.


The Forum’s organization will provide a 4 nights accommodation (lodging only) for the speakers: check-in will be on September 30th, check-out on October 3rd.

travel costs

Selected speakers are strongly advised to purchase travel tickets on their own, as the organizers don’t guarantee they’ll be able to do so themselves.

However, the organization will contribute to the travel expenditure the speakers will have to bear, upon presentation of the travel documents (flight, train, bus tickets, boarding passes, etc.) by the speakers themselves. The amount of the reimbursement won’t exceed 90% of the expenditure, neither it will exceed, in any case, 400 € per person.

Reimbursement methods will be as follows:

– speakers coming from a Sepa area country (or having a bank account based there) will be asked to provide the iban code of a bank account the organizers will make a transfer to, once the forum’s over and upon presentation of the travel documents;

– for participants not coming from a Sepa area country (nor having a bank account based there), the organizers will deal with each case singularly, according to the speakers’ provenance and in order to find the most practical way to perform the reimbursement (cash, bank transfer, other…).
