Youth Forum II


inspired by film - motivated by thought

by Fiona Zhang

It was a real meeting of the minds as youth from Concordia International School Shanghai hosted the second Youth Leadership Forum. This year, the Youth Leadership Forum was centered on the topic, “Eastern and Western Culture Through the Lens of the Modern Student.” 


The honoured guest in attendance, Liu Xia, executive director of the award-winning Documentary TV Series “When the Louvre Meets the Forbidden City”, gave the keynote address. Following her presentation, students from Concordia, PingHe Bilingual School, and ECNU Affiliated Bilingual School participated in two panel discussions: one on Art and the Humanities, and the other on Technology and Innovation.


This fully bilingual event offered live simultaneous translation so attendees could enjoy each speaker fully. Among the Concordia organizers were teachers Fiona Zhang and Doris Zhao. Student organizers were Henry C and Grace X and they were joined by panelists Corey Z, Charlie K, and Jenny F.
