Between the 13th and 16th of February 2020, the VI IOV World Youth Congress took place in the city of Nova Petrópolis / RS – Brazil.
The main objective of the meeting was to bring together young people from all continents (affiliated or not to IOV-Mundial) to exchange experiences related to artistic manifestations related to the dissemination and preservation of Popular Arts (Folklore).
The event also had an academic part: panel presentations, lectures and debate tables (composed and organized by young people and for young people), musical presentations and dances typical of the country that organized the Congress (Brazil) and other parts of the world
