The Department of Information and International Relations of Central Tibetan Administration is convening a Five-Fifty Youth Forum: Shaping Tibet’s Future, that will bring together a select group of 100 young Tibetans of the age group 25-40, from across the globe to discuss and deliberate on CTA’s Five-Fifty Vision.

The Five-Fifty Vision is that the Tibetan people will regain their freedom and dignity and that His Holiness the Dalai Lama will return to Tibet. This Vision motivates and shapes all of our activities.

At the same time, we will devote substantial attention and resources to sustaining and strengthening the resilience of the Tibetan people inside and outside of Tibet, the Tibetan freedom struggle, and the Tibetan culture and identity for the next fifty years if need be.
