Optimising the Impact of the Euro-BRICS Youth Platform: Team-building, Training and Brainstorming!
25- 30 April 2016 PARIS, France
It is with great pleasure and pride that we at LEAP present you our next event, designed to take the Euro-BRICS Youth endeavour to the next level!
The Euro-BRICS YOUTH Platform was initiated by LEAP after it realised — through its unique method of Political Anticipation — the future-bearing potential of the rapprochement of Europe and the BRICS as a spearhead of global governance reform in a multipolar world. However, given the current global political setup the Euro-BRICS connection does not live up to its full potential. It is this acknowledgement that forms the base of all activities in the Euro-BRICS network, including its youth branch.
Inspired by the above, the chief objective of the network is to lobby for the holding of the First EuroBRICS Summit. LEAP has decided to hold the Euro-BRICS Youth Platform’s first Strategic Planning Meeting (SPM) in France in April2016, in order to build up on the promising outcomes of the First Euro-BRICS Young Leaders Summit, which took place in June 2015 in Helsinki. With the network established in the aftermath of the Summit it is now time to strategise. Concisely, we will meet with the following objectives:
1.Set-up of IRPs (Internal Rules of Procedure)
2.Broadening of Network Activities
3.Strategise on a path towards the First Euro-BRICS Summit
5.Increase the Platform’s common culture
We will bring together 20 outstanding young citizens from Europe and the BRICS, as well as five senior experts and a fine selection of LEAP personnel. Our SPM will strengthen the network and set the path for promising future activities…!
