Youth Majlis





Inspired by the Arabic term “Majlis”, which is a communal space where people gather to connect, communicate and socialize. Misk Youth Majlis at Davos offers a platform for leaders and youth to discuss global youth issues, find collaborative solutions and explore how to transform youth ideas into action.


Exert your influence
Building on the theme of the Misk Global Forum 2023 (MGF), the conversation will continue with "The Big Now," encouraging young individuals to think ambitiously and act promptly. Our theme for The Youth Majlis is "The Big Now: Exert Your Influence," highlighting the power leaders have to create opportunities and support the youth. It emphasizes the importance of valuing and integrating youth voices, ideas, and actions into the decision-making process.
