ANJING, China, Dec 1 (Bernama-AsiaNet) — The 2021 IYF Special Dialogue in Nanjing is now launching a call for entries themed as “My Beautiful Hometown”. As a great opportunity for young people along the silk roads to present the charm of their hometowns to a global audience, it is an ideal platform for them to share their thoughts, stories, and actions on youth leadership in innovation and creativity. The IYFSD is also a treasured occasion to inspire more youth actions and leadership for a sustainable, inclusive, and resilient shared future for all, according to Nanjing Literature Centre.
All participants are kindly requested to create a piece of original writing, art creation, or video work speaking for their hometowns, cities or regions, like cultural heritages, unique landmarks, local customs, culinary traditions, or featured handicrafts, with a writing piece of any genre, no more than 150 words in English (or 200 words in Chinese). It is open to all the young population aged between 18 and 45 from countries or regions along the silk roads.
