Description

ID Space Team together with the Youth Parliament in Bratislava is calling youth leaders to participate in a four-day international meeting! ’Young Leaders for Tomorrow’s Europe’ (YLTE) will take place between the 11th and the 14th August, 2014 in Bratislava, Slovakia with the support of the Embassy of the United States in Bratislava and Bratislava City Council.

The meeting welcomes youths with a wealth of experience in Youth NGOs and Voluntary Organisations, or with experience in youth activism and active citizenship and having a keen interest in international affairs. The conference aims to tackle to themes: youth empowerment and youths on the world stage. Participants will develop the skills needed to positively impact their community such as leadership, public speaking, speech writing and debating. These tools will also be utilised in the second part of the conference which will give participants the opportunity to simulate international crises.
