European Athletics – UNESCO Young Leaders Forum

The “European Athletics-UNESCO Young Leaders Forum” will be held from 26 to 29 July 2010, alongside the European Athletics Championships, organized from 26 July to 1 August 2010.
This event will bring together approximately 100 participants, aged 18-26, who are nominated by the European Athletics Member Federations.
In line with the objectives of the 2010 International Year of Youth: Dialogue and Mutual Understanding, the Forum will promote youth civic engagement and athletics to young people, primarily by launching an online community of young leaders tasked to design, develop and implement community projects. These projects encourage youth entrepreneurship and will endow the young leaders with organizational and managerial experience for the future.
The programme for the Forum includes topical and practical presentations and workshop discussions, held both by participants and keynote speakers.
