European Youth Summit: 100 for the Next 100 in the Danube Region

JUNE 4-8, 2014 | SARAJEVO, BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA

www.alpbach.org/sarajevo2014

DOWNLOAD: SUMMIT PROGRAMME, ABOUT THE SUMMITAPPLICATION FORMEVALUATION CRITERIA

Today, Europe is facing serious challenges in various spheres, from the economy and unemployment to growing nationalism and enlargement fatigue in many European countries, to name but a few. As the next generation, European youth should be involved when these questions are brought up. The European Youth Summit “100 for the Next 100 in the Danube Region” will bring together 100 young leaders with various educational and professional backgrounds from the Danube Region and South East Europe. Instead of looking at the past and what happened 100 years ago, they will discuss the different facets of the challenges Europe is facing today and will face in the future. What has to change in order to make Europe future proof over the next century?

TOGETHER. FUTURE. EUROPE 
Why “100 for the Next 100” is unique
We believe that young people are a driving force towards change. “Together for the future of Europe” is our main motto. This is why we will mark the year 2014, the year of anniversaries, with a project that will gather young people in Sarajevo to show that we are looking towards the future, rather than living in the past. This project is our statement for the future we wish to have – together.

GOALS. RESULTS. IMPACT
What we want to achieve 
Our goal is to establish a network of young (future) leaders and policy makers who will find creative solutions to the challenges affecting Europe today. The participants of the summit will improve their skills in a variety of fields (public relations, leadership and media-related skills, lobbying and networking) and find a space to put those skills in practice. Invited experts, local and European politicians, scientists and artists, will deliver speeches and act as trainers and interlocutors to the younger generation in a series of working sessions on European questions. After the summit, a group of outstanding intellectuals will be equipped to broaden the debates on challenges they are facing today and to foster their own potentials for building a better society.

INSPIRATION
From the “village of thinkers” to future decision makers
The so-called ”Spirit of Alpbach” has inspired the members of the Forum Alpbach Network to get involved and have an impact on their societies for many years through local and regional projects. After so many years, it was but natural to join in a common project, organised by young people from Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro and Serbia and create something valuable for the region and for Europe. We realise that we are responsible for our future and we wish to inspire young people in our countries to broaden their horizons and to help us build better society.

ORGANISERS
Who we are & what we do
We are the members of the Forum Alpbach Network from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Croatia and Montenegro. With the support of the European Forum Alpbach and the Danube Competence Center, we want to make a lasting contribution to the future of our region. Please find out more about our work here.

APPLY UNTIL APRIL 20, 2014
Share your visions for the future and join the summit
The project will welcome young, distinguished Europeans from the 14 Danube region countries and South East Europe with various educational and professional backgrounds. We are looking forward to applications of young political decision makers, scientists and graduate students, entrepreneurs and civil society representatives. Please apply by filling out our application form and sending it by April 20, 2014, to sarajevo2014@alpbach.org.
