Held under the patronage of His Excellency (H.E.) Minister of Culture and Sports Salah bin Ghanem Al Ali, the two-day forum aimed at enabling youth to exercise leadership and societal roles that help them achieve the goals of the Qatar Vision 2030 and promote dialogue and consultation between youth, officials in centers, committees, clubs, etc.

In addition, it provided the appropriate environment for young people to present their ideas and participate in the discussion of issues that concern them and find appropriate solutions for them, besides opening up new spaces for youth work, and discovering young talents in various fields.

During the forum's final day, seven members of the youth advisory committee were announced. Prior to the results of the elections of the youth advisory committee, a number of the committee's candidates presented their electoral programmes. The candidates outlined during a discussion session the various issues and challenges faced by young people from their point of view, and put forward a number of solutions to handle them if elected.
