France is leading the way with close to 45,000 young people planning to attend.  Italy is in second with over 36,000 and the host country of Spain lists 22,000 already preparing for the meeting.  

Some countries only have one or two signed up such as Morocco and Sierra Leone.  While their numbers may dwindle in comparison to other countries, they are nonetheless important in providing an overall representation of the world.  

So far close to 200,000 participants in total have signed up for World Youth Day to take place in Madrid next August.
