Message from the President
It is my pleasure to offer my best wishes to you, as well as my hopes for your continued health and happiness as the new President of the Islamic Cooperation Youth Forum (ICYF), unanimously elected at its 3rd General Assembly, held on 22-24 October 2018 in Istanbul, the Republic of Turkey, I hope we will work together in a wide range of activities for the betterment of youth in the OIC Member States. In fact, ICYF’s main priorities emanate from OIC Youth Strategy and the Joint Youth Plan of Action, adopted by the OIC Member States in relevant ministerial meetings. This amplifies the commitment and entails the political will of all those who tirelessly strive to improve the situation of youth in the OIC geography.
With your strong support, we intend on focusing on youth economic empowerment through tackling issues of unemployment rates, innovation, job creation, and entrepreneurship, while ensuring that the fight against Islamophobia, radicalization, extremism, and identity crises remain high on our agenda.
