The Misk Global Forum (MGF) is the biggest youth forum in the region.

The theme this year is The Big Now, encouraging young individuals to think ambitiously and act promptly, channeling their energy towards proactive problem-solving. Big represents ambitious thinking, and Now highlights timely action. Within this overarching theme, we’re emphasizing the sub-themes: Think Big, Act Now, urging young leaders to dream big, set bold goals, and take immediate and purposeful action to bring their visions to life.

According to Cameron Tan, the Director of AYO Research Center, the wide range of speakers who shared their insights at the forum was eye-opening. Hearing some insights and sharing from the Saudi Arabian ministers as well as other renowned speakers such as Chris Gardner and Robert Herjavec allows the participants to explore opportunities globally.

Karen another representatives of AYO also mentioned that the whole event allowed the international community to witness how progressive Saudi Arabia has been and their willingness to show that the young leaders of Saudi Arabia wish to have a spot in the international forums and have access to a wider range of opportunities across the globe.
