About this event


That old saying, “Youth will inherit the world”, rings even truer today. Except that today’s dynamic, cyber-connected youth is unwilling to let the older generations dictate what that their future world will look like.

Call it the 21st century youth quake, with young people all over the world striving to make a difference.

The most celebrated case in point is Greta Thurnberg, the teenager named TIME “Person of the Year 2019” for her efforts to bring attention to global warming. There are many Gretas who are also doing their part, and Indonesia is no exception. Here in Southeast Asia’s largest democracy young people are continuing to make their voices heard.

Youth Activist Meet-Up (YAMU) is your chance to be part of this movement. Young people from leading educational institutions will gather in Bali to discuss their objectives, plans and achievements in a forum headlined by an array of empowering and inspiring speakers.

At the helm is organizer GCM Group, renowned as a pioneer in establishing ground-breaking media that break down stereotypes and promote change. Trust them to spearhead this remarkable opportunity to reach today’s youth through the arena of YAMU.

Join us as we lead by example, and reach out to today’s real movers & shakers in the world. Youth will be served, and YAMU will be the ideal time to make an impression on them.

Register here.
