Ghazaly speaking at the International Youth Conference in Indonesia 

The “Youth Power” Foundation in Indonesia hosted the anthropologist Hassan Ghazaly, founder of the Nasser Movement and Fellowship for International Leadership, during a meeting via “video conference” technology, on Wednesday, April 8, in the hospitality of a group of speakers from different nationalities, including Indonesia and Pakistan, in the presence of more than 500 local Indonesian youth leaders, to talk about his pioneering experience in the field of youth diplomacy and his international programs as an international model to be followed in the field of youth empowerment for leadership.

During his speech, Ghazaly addressed several important topics, one of them was his talk about the concept of global leadership, pointing to the leader Ahmed Sukarno, Jawaharlal Nehru, Joseph Tito, Kwame Nkrumah and the immortal leader Gamal Abdel Nasser, the founders of the Non-Aligned Movement, as a model and a form of leadership that we need at the present time in the light of crises and the conflicts that many countries of the world suffer from, especially because of the international polarization that is taking place in the world, indicating that the Nasser Movement for International Leadership was able to enhance youth diplomacy and created, over the past four years, spaces for dialogue and a platform for exchanging experiences and opportunities for networking, partnerships and cooperation between participating youth leaders from various fields. 

During his speech, Ghazaly stressed the keenness of the Nasser Fellowship for International Leadership to revive the principles of the Non-Aligned Movement and to study its historical role and contributions to building peace and achieving stability in societies, pointing to the workshops held during the fellowship’s activities under the title “Global Citizen Talks” in order to formulate the concepts of Non-alignment and its principles from a youth perspective that keeps pace with the challenges of the times.

In a related context, Ghazaly referred to the importance of education, the role of parallel education and its unlimited innovative ability in absorbing the energies of young people and qualifying them, stressing his keenness to contribute to strengthening the role of parallel education through all the projects and programs that he launches. He also referred to the role of Al-Azhar,on the occasion of the 1803th anniversary of its founding, that great place which has a long-standing spiritual, educational and cultural value for the peoples of the world and the Indonesian people in particular.

At the end of his speech, Ghazaly praised the merit of Indonesian youth for leadership in various fields, pointing out that he witnessed examples of them closely during the Nasser Fellowship for International Leadership in its past editions, among them the youth leader "Safi Effendi", head of the National Youth Council, stressing his honorable representation of his country and an ambassador of great humility, good manners and mindfulness.
