Overview

The time has come! Borderless Youth Forum Phase II: Cross continental justice innovation has started. Our forum is open to youth across national boundaries through virtual collaboration and design thinking to create new experiences that advance justice.

Details

In the Forum, you will work in small teams with teammates across multiple continents to deepen your understanding of justice issues and find concrete opportunities to help people.

The forum is presented by the Thailand Institute of Justice and the United National Office on Drugs and Crime. It is a digital platform which connects youth across the globe to brainstorm ideas to tackle social justice issues. It is designed to foster trust and relationship while thousands kilometers away, to build empathy with people who face injustice in different parts of the world, and to learn from local experts and create prototypes to explore new ways to address social justice issues using design thinking as a new tool to tackle them. 

Would you be interested in an opportunity to innovate with teammates in Asia, Europe, and Africa on issues of justice, such as gender based violence, access to justice for vulnerable groups, and social reintegration of ex-prisoners?

If so, we encourage you to apply!

The Forum takes place online over the first two weeks of October 2019, culminating in the Borderless Weekend of 12-13 October 2019.
