What is Galicia2018?
Galicia International Forum (GIF) 2018 is the largest intercultural youth event held this year in Spain and will bring together 150 young people, organizers, speakers and volunteers from all corners of Europe to discuss the problems that we are concerned around the theme of this session: seeding the future through which participants will be aware of the need to work today if we want to reap the rewards of a better future tomorrow.
Galicia IF will be held in 3 different places, during a week in July. It will start in Vigo, followed by the famous Cies Islands and finishing off with the city of Santiago de Compostela, combining the modernity of Vigo, the natural landscape of the Cíes and the cultural environment of Santiago. This will be the first session in EYP Spain that will take place in two different cities, thus posing a challenge that the team of organizers is determined to surpass. It is also the first International Forum held in Galicia, a region that has been a recent addition to EYPE.
It will undoubtedly be a pioneer event that will mark a before and after in Galicia, in Spain and in Europe. For the first time in a session of this caliber in our country, of all the proposals made by the Participants at least one per committee will be a viable project that will be made into a reality in our land. Thus, the the impact that this project will have goes beyond the individual development of the participants because it will boost, the growth and modernization of Galicia.
