APPLICATION DEADLINE: 21st of October, 2016

Following the immensely successful 4th Emerging Leaders Conference held in Brussels last year, WYA Europe is delighted to announce its 5th edition. This year’s conference theme is Population and Environment: Building a Sustainable World and it will take place in Brussels from the 27th to the 30th of November, 2016. While putting the focus on innovative solutions and ideas that respond to population- or environment- related issues, the conference aims to provide Europe youth with accurate information on the status of our environment, identify and examine the emerging challenges and promote responsible stewardship.

The Emerging Leaders Conference (ELC) is an annual event hosted by World Youth Alliance Europe, which seeks to bring together young leaders, active members and youth advocates from across Europe to interact with policy makers, experts and leaders on current global issues. It also provides young individuals with special training on programs in those areas to give them the adequate tools to make a difference in their own communities. Known for its intimate forum for dialogue, as well as intellectual formation via lectures and discussions, the ELC fosters a meaningful network of friendships based on a shared vision of the human person.

The Emerging Leaders Conference 2016 is a four-day event that features a wide range of activities, including conferences, lectures, panel discussions, training, cultural events, a cocktail reception and much more.
