The Sixth Youth Research Forum 2024

Innovation for Developing Societies

 Wednesday, March 6-7, 2024 

Youth are the pillar of society as they are the ones to bear the burden of future generations’ sustainability. Soon enough, they are the ones to be positioned to have a tremendous capacity to give back to the community and to society in general, and to be the ones with most potential to be dynamic physically, mentally and creatively. In this way, young people are the most important resource that all social institutions (government, private and NGOs) must invest in, in order to achieve integrated and sustainable development. These institutions should also study how young people transform their energies and creativity into positive productive elements that serve and develop society politically, culturally, socially and economically. This forum seeks to develop in young people the culture of scientific research and to confirm their role in leading change and creating opportunities for development and progress through scientific research and innovation. This will be achieved through tying research to the needs of society, and emphasizing the synergy of science and the integration of human knowledge and the importance of understanding the relationship between natural and technical sciences, humanities, social and cultural heritage, in order to increase the ability of societies to develop resources and sustain development opportunities.

As part of the University's strategy aimed at developing scientific research among young people, particularly, the aspects related to identity studies, heritage and cultural communication; the third research forum entitled "Identity and Cultural Tourism" plans to achieve several cognitive, cultural, and community purposes where the forum represents an opportunity for young people to serve the needs of society in the next crucial phases of development. This especially the case, as the State of Qatar prepares to host the World Cup 2022, and young people will have a leading role in maximizing the benefit of this occasion by involving them in carrying out the research and exploratory duties leading up to this international event, such as highlighting the national identity and the culture of Qatar and its people, the introduction of its ancient heritage and its modern renaissance and the promotion of cultural tourism that can be enjoyed by the tourist and visitor to Qatar in the next stage.
