An international youth festival is a place to observe the potential of the future and what appeals to the new generations. International youth festivals around the world focus on arts, peace, film, music, prayer, and public speaking. For instance, the Global Youth Festival held in India is inspired to carry on the message of Mahatma Gandhi. The International Youth Arts Festival held in the United Kingdom aims to discover new talents, and potentially new methods and genres, in art. Some festivals focus on ideologies, such as a left-wing festival that has been organized since 1947, the World Festival of Youth and Students.
