Young people at the conference will take part in interactive workshops on community cohesion, active citizenship, leadership, digital literacy and preventing violent extremism. The event also includes a day-long simulation of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) where debates will focus on international peace and security.

The programme will enable young people to better understand social change through democratic institutions and appreciate the views of others locally and globally.

Participants will gain a better understanding of their role as actors to prevent and counter violent extremism through informal and creative means. Following the summit, they will be expected to deliver future youth-led activities for their peers to help counter violent radicalisation.

This programme is to build the capacity of would-be young advocates and is not suitable for experts in the field.
