The Telenor Youth Forum (TYF) is a global program that is designed and hosted by Telenor Group and the Nobel Peace Center (NPC). This joint initiative is based on our shared belief that young people can use digital technology to drive real change in the world.
Applicants between 20-28 years of age in twelve Telenor markets are eligible for TYF17, which will run in Oslo, Norway, from December 8-10, 2017.
Eligible markets include Bangladesh, Pakistan, Malaysia, Myanmar and Thailand in the Asia region. In Europe, they are Telenor Group’s home country of Norway, along with Sweden, Denmark, Hungary, Serbia, Montenegro and Bulgaria.
The TYF program requires a one-year commitment and includes a second gathering in Bangkok in May 2018. The selected delegates are expected to work virtually throughout the TYF year with their assigned teams, averaging around two hours per week. Their work will, over the course of the year, create digital services that address urgent social challenges originally posed to them at the event’s kickoff in December.
