TIJ/UNODC Borderless Youth Forum 2019 on Justice, Collaboration, and Sustainable Development

TIJ/UNODC Borderless Youth Forum 2019 on Justice, Collaboration, and Sustainable Development

Deadline: September 7, 2019

Applications are open for Borderless Youth Forum Phase II: Cross continental justice innovation. The Borderless Youth Forum connects youth (age 18-30) across national boundaries through virtual collaboration and design thinking to create new experiences that advance justice.

The forum is presented by the Thailand Institute of Justice and the United National Office on Drugs and Crime. It is a digital platform which connects youth across the globe to brainstorm ideas to tackle social justice issues. It is designed to foster trust and relationship while thousands kilometers away, to build empathy with people who face injustice in different parts of the world, and to learn from local experts and create prototypes to explore new ways to address social justice issues using design thinking as a new tool to tackle them.

The forum is open to youth across national boundaries through virtual collaboration and design thinking to create new experiences that advance justice. In the Forum, you will work in small teams with teammates across multiple continents to deepen your understanding of justice issues and find concrete opportunities to help people.

It takes place online over the first two weeks of October 2019, culminating in the Borderless Weekend of 12-13 October 2019.
