European Young Leaders: '40 under 40' - Paris Seminar
Among the many challenges that Europe faces, the absence of a collective vision presents one of the principal obstacles to an effective and sustainable system of governance, as well as stable and harmonious societies. The 40 under 40 programme, led by EuropaNova and Friends of Europe, aims to remedy this deficit by bringing together some of the most talented individuals from across Europe, capable of forging the type of vision that is currently missing. They will be asked to reflect upon the major problems confronting Europe and to generate innovative ideas that can provide lasting solutions. The '40 under 40' will become ambassadors for a new vision, one which can counter the re-emergence of nationalist tendencies and provide the inspiration for a European renewal.
Each year, forty young leaders from diverse professional and cultural backgrounds will be invited to participate in two three-day seminars, the first taking place in Paris in December 2011, and the second in Brussels in 2012. Read more about the European Young Leaders in EN or FR.
