The BYF has interwoven the unification and diversity, and it provides atmosphere for youths to express themselves and develop their creation, but also to establish new relationships or expand the existing ones, and exchange useful information, facilitate the acquaintance, as well as organize discussions with regards to actual problems and concerns. 600 participants are expected to attend the 14th edition of the festival as about 250 of them are foreign guests.
