170 youth participants from Qatar and other countries across the world will take part in the first edition of ‘Generation Amazing (GA) Youth Festival 2019,’ scheduled from December 15-18 at Qatar Foundation’s Oxygen Park.
The occasion, which forms part of Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC)’s Generation Amazing Programme, marks the start of a series of festivals leading to 2022 and will be the first youth event held alongside the FIFA Club World Cup this year.
The main highlights of the festival include welcome activities, football for development workshops led by Youth Ambassadors, cultural performances and celebrity Ambassador Activations for all youth in attendance.
Football for Good workshops will teach participants to build and design social development programmes around football infrastructure, event organisation and community outreach initiatives. The festival’s educational courses will take participants through the fundamental principles of active citizenship through football and project management.
GA will also launch a local Youth Ambassador programme with the aim of recruiting five new Ambassadors from Qatar in time for the Youth Festival. Applicants who display an interest in social change and sport development, and demonstrate basic leadership skills, will have the edge of being selected for this programme. Those who are interested can fill up an application form online.
GA Partner Clubs – AS Roma, KAS Eupen, Leeds United and Sheffield FC, the English FA, as well as PSG Academy in Doha – will also be present, together with youth participants and GA youth ambassadors for the festival.
