Now, we are in Greece The theme of this conference is “Step Up and Lead!” For the first time in Greece, high school students will have the unique opportunity to engage for two days with Nobel Peace Laureate, Adolfo Perez Esquivel of Argentina, and local leaders and non-profits on issues of Global Sustainability and improving conditions in Greece.
Nearly 300 students will be attending from Europe, US, UK. Middle East and Greece. The aim of this conference is to bring together the best professionals from Greece and abroad, together with the Nobel Peace Laureate, to empower youth to step into the leadership roles before them and build their capacity to manage the challenges faced by their generation.
Students will participate in workshops by CEO’s, present their community service projects at the conference, partake in a civic engagement project with NGO’s and lead dialogue with college mentors. Service projects will be nominated for the Billion Acts of Peace Campaign, a Nobel Laureate initiative (www.billionacts.org).
Today, the English Language is such an important tool of communication for higher education and the workplace, but also for negotiations at the highest level of leadership. We would be most enthused to have your participation in developing the next generation of young leaders with vision, purpose and integrity.
