Young Minds Forum (YMF): 2020 is a two-part virtual forum on supporting young minds in local and global communities.

During Part One on Tuesday, October 27th, from 1-2EST, a group of bright young minds aged 16-28 explored how communities (locally and globally) can support young people in building inclusive, innovative, creative communities. 

In Part Two on Thursday, October 29th from 12-1pmEST, members of the arts, educational, and business professional communities responded to the young people’s concepts and concerns highlighted in Part One.
