This is the first time the Summit will be held in the U.S.A. since the first Summit in 2006.  We will spend two weeks together at Soka University of America, a beautiful campus set on rolling hills near the Pacific Ocean.  We’ll tour cultural institutions, Hollywood film studios and spend a Day-of-Service at local NGOs.  Most importantly, we’ll create seven powerful films about the social issues that form the foundation of the IYMS mission.  1,000 people will see these films at the Closing Ceremony in the beautiful Soka Performing Arts Center. This Summit’s theme is “Fanfare for the Future” and we’ll celebrate all the arts, which connect and inspire us.  You’ll enjoy (maybe participate in!) a delegate talent show, view an Afghan student art exhibit and hear an inspiring performance by a California youth orchestra. A “fanfare” alerts an audience that something great will follow.  Over eight years, hundreds of students and their teachers from over 42 countries have been inspired by the Summit experience and created amazing projects that united young people and amplified their voices.  Together we can achieve the impossible – we can create a more peaceful, just and healthy planet.  Be part of something great – join us at the 9th International Youth Media Summit!

Past and Future

By Evelyn Seubert,
President of the International Youth Media Summit

This year in Serbia we will gather for the Eight International Youth Media Summit.  Since the Summit first brought young people together in 2006, the world of technology has changed dramatically.  Now we read books on e-readers, cell phones can tell you where they are when lost, cars will soon drive themselves, and filmmakers have already started to edit in “the cloud”.

8th-test03

But some things  about the world haven’t changed:  we still have too much war and too much poverty.  Women still do not have equal rights in many parts of the world, and lack of education leaves many young people without hope.  Our planet suffers, as do our bodies – illnesses both outside and in.  And most sadly, we discriminate against each other for the color of our skin, our religious beliefs or our disabilities.

At the Summit, young people gather to use the latest in media technologies to shed light on the darkest parts of human existence.  By working together with passion and conviction, the Summit delegates unleash energetic waves of hope and possibility that crash through borders long after the Summit’s closing ceremony.

Please join us and become part of the Summit Family.  Experience what the young people of the world can create, together.

IYMS is a meeting place for people from Japan and Korea to Brazil and USA, South Africa, Nigeria, Poland, Sweden… Our members, participants, young leaders in the Youth Committee, and volunteers are from different continents, different cultural, historical and confessional backgrounds and traditions. We are working with Buddhists, Hindu, Muslims, Jewish, Orthodox and Catholic Christians, Protestants and other faith traditions.
IYMS is a unique, safe and creative place where people from Iran, Israel, USA, Kosovo, Serbia, Turkey, Cyprus are working together for a better future and benefit to all of us. Media Education is our permanent activity:
•         Media/films/animations we produce are without dialogue.  We use language of pictures and sound to convey our message to everyone regardless of linguistic differences among the different audiences;
•         Each one of our seven teams is intercultural! In every group working in Declarations, Scenario and Storyboard there are people from different countries and different background;
•         Our educational process is not only intercultural, but it is also interactive.   Teachers and students are learning together and become PARTNERS in education. Teachers help to students to determinate the best possible content and students help teachers understand and use new computers and informative technologies.
As IYMS moves forward to advance education and careers in many disciplines, the delegates bring with them a passion for creating a harmonious world community that will benefit from shared creativity, cultural understanding and media education.  IYMS delegates inspire others in their generation to shape the future through intercultural and interactive media.
Using workshops, video conferencing and the web, our partners and members around the globe have used media in new and innovative ways to bring young people together to change the World.  These collaborative efforts became the inspiration for an annual gathering of young media makers and their teachers.
