Cluj-Napoca will host the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Global Forum in 2021. The event is set to take place between October 4 and October 9 of next year, according to Romania-Insider.com.
The event, which takes place every three years, will bring together international youth and education stakeholders, including global directors of The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award program and trustees.
“2021 marks the 100th birthday of HRH Prince Philip, and we are honored to host the world’s leaders of the Award program to help plan its future and growth. In 2018, Cluj was selected to host this global event – the first time the Forum has been held by a country outside of the Commonwealth and the first time to be hosted by a former Warsaw Pact country. It speaks volumes about Romania and also Cluj Napoca, as a city that can host world-class events. We hope and pray that Covid-19 will not be around next year, but we are a year out, and so we are planning for every eventuality. We want to ensure that this Global Forum is not just the best ever, but the most accessible too so that our guests receive the same warm welcome from Romania wherever they are in the world,” Shajjad Rizvi, the chairman of the Duke of Edinburgh Award Romania, said.
