The Award Ceremony will be organized in Beijing, China, on the occasion of International Peace Day (21 September), and in partnership with the China World Peace Foundation. It will bring together more than 400 participants, including the winners and members of the Selection Committee, representatives of participating Member States, youth associations, and communities.

A Panel Discussion entitled, “Youth’s Visions on the Silk Roads”, will be organised to allow young people to share their views, and discuss the ways in which to increase involvement in the Silk Roads. It is here that the Photo Exhibition will be presented for the first time.

The photographs will also be published in a professionally bound collection of images to be distributed to interested parties. They will subsequently be displayed in a traveling exhibition that will circulate throughout various regions. This will help raise young people's awareness of their shared history and values, as well as increase their engagement in important current events.
