At a Crossroads: Industry 5.0 vs. Inclusive Development. Where is the Future?

The Amazing Race – YGF Edition

This year’s cultural exchange program will be like no other. Participants will not only get to experience the sights and sounds of the famous Dutch capital, Amsterdam but they will get to challenge the city head on in a special edition of The Amazing Race ‘Youth Global Forum edition’.

Participants will be divided into teams and will make their way through the city to various ‘challenge points’ where they will be tasked with earning and accumulating points by completing a series of tasks at some of the Dutch capitals most famous locations.

Roll the dice and sample some of the best, and the worst, food that the Netherlands has to offer; explore the Royal Palace and uncover the mystery behind the royal family; put your brush to canvas & channel your inner Van Gogh but be sure to arrive with enough time to complete your masterpiece!

The team that finishes with the most amount of points will be declared the winners, winning a special prize to help commemorate the fifth annual Youth Global Forum.
This cultural exchange program offers a unique way to see the city of Amsterdam as well as offering participants a chance to forge friendships and build partnerships by working together to overcome the challenges that will be put in front of you.
