The aim of the contest is the creation of a worldwide network uniting the "United World Ambassadors," who will become the spokespersons of the Youth for a United World in national and international institutions. Specifically, the selected Ambassadors will be in charge of establishing a collaborative relationship with the UNESCO National Commissions, presenting them with the best practices promoted over the years during the United World Week in their respective countries, in the aim of obtaining the recognition of the United World Week at the United Nations.
The jury in charge will choose the 30 most trustworthy candidates who will have access to a training course that will be divided into two phases:
• Online training course for the United World Project and the running of international institutions;
• Two-day lectures by experts and professors of international politics (including some UNESCO representatives), to be held in Manila, Philippines, immediately before the Genfest (July 6-8, 2018). For candidates who cannot take part in the event, the lectures will be broadcast in live streaming.
