Conversations about Women’s Health Continued After ELC 2020

What do women need in the area of health? What does the term “informed choice” mean? How can we make sure we provide girls with the support and care they deserve in their teenage years? These questions were among the issues addressed during the Emerging Leaders Conference Europe. We learned from experts about the methods […]

Thoughts on the 2020 Emerging Leaders Conference

The Emerging Leaders Conference is a great and truly enriching experience for the young people of our time. Indeed, all of the conferences we have attended place human dignity at the center of current national and European legislative issues.

ELC 2020 – A Truly Interactive Conference

Two weeks ago, I attended the Emerging Leaders Conference on Women’s Health and Rights, organised by the World Youth Alliance Europe, co-funded by the European Youth Foundation, a fund established by the Council of Europe.

WYA Europe Hosts 2017 ELC on Migration and Development

“The essence of the beautiful is unity in variety”, said once Felix Mendelssohn, an artist from the 19th century. This year’s ELC was a stark example of such a statement. Young people from all over Europe and beyond gathered to give their contribution to the issue of migration currently affecting the world. What harmonized a […]

What if…

  What and If are words, two very simple and overused bundles of letters, that when placed side by side can have the ability to permeate onto the unconscious and the conscious, inhibit the will to want and the will to do, and imprison people in a state of being immensely miserable.
