Youth Leaders at World Economic Forum
Dead Sea, Jordan
May 20-21, 2005

Under The Patronage of His Majesty King Abdullah II 

Mr. Bawa Jain, Chairman of the World Youth Peace Summit, delivered the following address to the Arab Youth Leaders who attended the World Economic Forum in Jordan recently.   The Youth Leadership dialogue was jointly organized by the World Youth Peace Summit and the King Abdullah II Fund for Development, the local Summit planning partner.

Dear All,

I hope that you had time now to digest the extraordinary experience that you were privileged to be a part of. It’s events like this that can often transform one’s entire life. You are an extraordinary group. I made a commitment to follow up and so, here I am. As you are aware, The King Abdullah Fund is working closely with us and it is the body designated by The Royal Hashemite Court to coordinate the hosting of the World Youth Peace Summit. It is my intention to keep all of you involved. As I indicated, we are planning to hold an Arab Youth Leaders Summit in September 11-13, 2005 in Amman, Jordan which leads into the World Youth Peace Summit at The Dead Sea, September 11-15, 2006.Here is what each of you can do:

  • Visit our website at and keep yourselves updated
  • Identify Youth Leaders who can be part of the delegations, first for the Arab Summit and then the World Summit.
  • Begin the formation of a Council of Youth Leaders in each of your countries. Remember, you have to be extremely selective. To be considered are only those Youth Leaders with a track record and a commitment towards social responsibility in a position of influence willing to commit for  the long-term implementation of WYPS action plans.
  • Those individuals interested to only attend a conference and enjoy it as a one time shot, please know this is not the forum for you.
  • Help determine what the critical issues are in your region and country. What are the resources you can use to assist you in providing leadership? What are those areas where you require assistance? With The King Abdullah Fund, we hope to create an Arab Council of Youth Leaders which will work closely with the World Council of Youth Leaders. We are committed to forming it at the World Youth Peace Summit. Fresh from your experience, I am sure you can leverage it at any level and gain support from your Governments, Business leaders and prominent civic leaders. We have several Letters of Support from Heads of States, including His Majesty King Abdullah II. Please encourage Heads of State of each of your countries to also support the WYPS. Please look for prominent Young Leaders who are willing to serve and we can designate them as “Youth Ambassadors”.
  • Now, I want to ask each of you, in less than a page, to write about your experience in Jordan and what you have learned and how it has impacted your life. I intend to post these letters on our website so others may benefit. I have no doubt that each of you is gifted and will succeed. I look forward to hearing from each one of you. Please know, when possible, I am willing to travel to each of your countries. This will only happen, of course, when you have done the basic spade work. We can signate each one of you as a Coordinator for the WYPS, but I need your commitment. Go and shine!

    With my best wishes,

    Bawa Jain

    Chairman, WYPS
