The youngest yet most energetic event of the World Youth Forum, where ambitious young stories get shared with the world.

INSPIRE.D is a platform and stage that gives the opportunity to those under 40 with a story worth telling. It takes place on the theatre stage in the World Youth Forum in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, and is planned to take place annually. 

Speakers have a window of 18 minutes to speak on the INSPIRE.D stage with an expected audience of 1k-2k attendees LIVE and might have the opportunity to have their stories shared with the world online after the forum.

Some of the main topics covered so far:

– Solving world problems, such as lack of clean water through genuine innovations

– Life experiences that challenge the status quo: through struggle, persistence, resilience & hard work

– Family values that build better surroundings for upcoming generations

  • Inspiring stories about young creators who give others hope and practical solutions through technology and education


INSPIRE.D highlights talks and stories of inventions, survivals, key successes, diversified perspectives, humane stories & other major topics. If you think that you have an impactful story that could influence others to make the world a better place if you dream to reach out to others and want to communicate your survival through a world-class event, and if you are with an innovation or invention that needs international exposure, you might still have a chance to become part of INSPIRE.D community on our upcoming World Youth Forum just like our former INSPIRE.D speakers
