Tatarstan’s Kazan in Russia, which will end its tenure as the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Youth Capital this month, will see off the year with OIC Youth Leaders Awarding Ceremony. An awards ceremony will be held on Dec. 15.

Kazan hosted a string of events attended by thousands throughout the year as the Youth Capital, which brought together ministers, lawmakers, representatives of youth organizations, young entrepreneurs, opinion leaders and academics from more than 40 countries.

ICYF, in cooperation with the Ministry of Youth Affairs of the Republic of Tatarstan (Russian Federation), will organize the closing ceremony and awards ceremony in cooperation with the Academy of Youth Diplomacy and Tatarstan Republican Youth Public Foundation SELET. The event will bring together ministers of youth and education from OIC member countries as well as representatives of international organizations and youth leaders for a roundtable meeting that will take stock of the year and plan the future of cooperation between the Russian Federation and OIC for international youth cooperation.
