GLOBSEC Young Europeans’ Forum 2016

Bratislava, October 2016


As the European Union and Europe as a whole are facing unprecedented challenges, politicians, analysts, journalists as well as the general public keep looking for solutions and calling for thorough and strategic reforms for the Union. On this occasion we are seeking to engage exceptional young Europeans in the GLOBSEC Young Europeans’ Forum 2016, the CALL FOR APPLICANTS is now open until 11 September, midnight CET.


The aim of the project GLOBSEC Young Europeansʹ Forum is to give young professionals an opportunity to discuss current challenges in the EU while improving their policy-making skills and engaging in networking with their peers as well as senior policy makers. Young Europeansʹ Forum is organized on the side-lines of annual European conference GLOBSEC Tatra Summit that will take place on 28 – 30 October 2016 in Bratislava. It is an excellent opportunity for emerging young leaders, experts and professionals to confront their views on current European, foreign policy and security issues.
