Dr. Moustafa Elfeki, writer, thinker and director of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, said that the World Youth Forum is a type of political education that the Egyptian state resorted to to educate young people about the practices of political action, adding that the idea began in the Socialist Youth Organization in its time and now it has become the World Youth Forum, which is considered A completely different idea of gathering young people in youth conferences.
“I participated in all previous editions of the World Youth Forum, and I see it as an appropriate opportunity for dialogue, conversation and opening all issues with young people from around the world,” El-Feki added in a telephone interview to the program “Happening in Egypt” on MBC Egypt today, Tuesday. He explained that the forum is an opportunity to educate the new generations politically, because it is noticeable that the new generations in the whole world are alienated from public life and do not care about what is going on around them.
He continued: “The World Youth Forum is trying to draw the attention of young people and create a degree of awareness for them to be able to understand where they are located on the world map, whether politically, intellectually and culturally, its role within the state and the expected determinants of its future,” stressing: “The experience of the Socialist Youth Organization is not currently valid because it has a political system One, but the world has changed now.
And the Director of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina added that the Socialist Youth Organization had a bad reputation, because its announcement was linked to the defeat of 1967, and its announcement was linked to the Arab Socialist Union and the practices of some of its members, explaining that political slogans in the past differed greatly from the current time, and every era has its issues and concerns.
He explained that the Islamic project is always trying to compete with the national project, and this was evident after 1967, stressing: “I dealt with all previous regimes, but with my personal convictions, even if I disagree with those regimes.”
