Pharos University in Alexandria (PUA) seeks to cooperate with the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia, known as “ESCWA,” and its “Josour” initiative which helps youth’s training and employment. Accordingly, a team representing PUA’s faculties participated in the Forum, which was held at the Semiramis Hotel in Cairo. The team included 30 students from the faculties of Financial and Administrative Sciences, Tourism and Hotel Management, Legal Studies and International Relations, Physical Therapy, and Engineering.

The Forum discussed Josour’s role in providing training and employment opportunities for young people, and how to promote and activate the role of this initiative. In addition, some examples of successful experiences that benefited from the initiative were demonstrated, including examples from Georgetown University, USA as well as Egyptian examples. Furthermore, teams from Borg Al Arab University and Zewail University participated in the Forum.
