Twenty-six talented millennials from Telenor’s 13 markets were selected from a pool of nearly 5,000 applicants to represent their countries in the fourth annual Telenor Youth Forum (TYF) and 2016 Nobel Peace Prize activities.
TYF is a program run by Telenor Group and the Nobel Peace Center, with the aim to empower youth to solve social issues through technology. Two delegates will represent Pakistan at Telenor Youth Forum 2016.
Mehroze Munawar, 22, is a student of Management Science from Karachi and wants to find creative solutions to social challenges through digitalization.
Sajawal Waseem, 22, is also a Management Science student from Lahore and passionate about simplifying and communicating complicated thoughts using technology.
Over 2,700 applications were received for the Telenor Youth Forum, and through essays, video interviews, event appearances and other screenings, two delegates were chosen.
The one-year TYF program begins in Oslo, Dec. 8 – 11, during Nobel Peace Prize week. The selected delegates will take part in events related to honoring the Nobel Peace Prize winner.
The year-long TYF program will consist of virtual teamwork (after the Oslo event) punctuated by a Bangkok-based meet-up in May 2017, and culminating in the unveiling of the teams’ digital exhibitions with the Nobel Peace Center in October 2017.
