The MiSK Global Forum 2016 – Young Leaders Together was a unique platform integrating a variety of multidimensional formats, culture, and technology in an inclusive program that enabled the proposal of impactful initiatives and an organic exchange of ideas, projects, and innovative practices.

The Forum welcomed 1,000 young leaders, international entrepreneurs, and other stakeholders to foster the creative potential of tomorrow’s national and regional leaders in the (Arab) region and beyond. The core of the Forum was to bring together Saudi and Arab youth with the brightest minds from around the world. The Forum provided a new platform for: leadership sessions, knowledge exchanges / peer-to-peer learning, mentoring programs, and networking opportunities. It also included a lineup of high level speakers presenting through panels and TED-style talks on substantive issues around the themes of the “future of work”, youth entrepreneurship, millennials, and diversifying the local economy.
