Making Global Connections at the Global Youth Trends Forum

Paula Andrea González-Mojica and Catalina González-Mojica, two Hopkins-Nanjing Center students studying in Taipei this year under a Johns Hopkins SAIS visiting arrangement, first learned about the 2022 Global Youth Trends Forum in mid-July, when the SAIS Global Careers Office shared information about the event.

The Global Youth Trends Forum is a four-day event hosted by Taiwan’s Youth Development Administration to advance international exchange between young people. The event included a two-day trip to Taipei’s Beitou district, Guanxi Township of Hsinchu County, technological research centers, and the TSMC Museum of Innovation. The Forum included panels about the metaverse, artificial intelligence, integrated circuits, and social media. 

Paula and Catalina were most intrigued by the topic of the 2022 forum: “Meta-Verse Era. Opportunities like this don’t show up every day,” Paula replied when asked about her decision to attend the forum, “I was convinced that it would enrich my knowledge about digitalization while also meeting other young people from Taiwan and around the world.”
