Do you want to change the world? Keep reading!

You are bold and audacious. You are 18 to 24 years old. You look to the future. You do not accept the status quo. You want to change the world. If this describes you, apply to participate in a powerful encounter for change within an International Youth Conference, bringing together forward-thinking young people like yourself and like-minded influential European decision makers and research scholars. Hope to see you in Gothenburg on November 16-19, 2020!

Saddened by closed borders in Europe due to Corona, and prepared to responsibly adjust to Corona-related requirements, we invite You and additionally some 25 young people from European cities, suburbs, and countryside to a four-day conference. We pay for your sustainable travelling to Gothenburg, and your lodging and meal costs during your stay. The overall goal for the conference is to stand up for a democratic and open society, and to resist the pessimistic ideas of contemporary nationalism and populism.

You will engage in lively discussions evolving around appointed tasks, share your life stories and experiences, visions, and longings for the future.

Your voice will be heard when you and the other conference participants present your ideas and suggestions on how to sustain a democratic and open society in a culminating 15-minute statement.

You apply, by submitting a personal presentation and argumentation of why we should choose you. Whether you apply or not please help us spreading the word by sharing this invitation with your friends, colleagues, and relatives.

I look forward to your application!

Conference Organizer, Co-initiator and Project Manager of the International Youth Think Tank
