Model NATO Youth Summit (Brussels 2012)

Posted: January 30, 2012 in African Youth and development


Dear participants,
It is our distinct honour and privilege to welcome you at the first edition of Model NATO Youth Summit (Brussels 2012):

“Political responsibility through leadership, innovation and strategic thinking in the XXI century

Model NATO Youth Summit is first and foremost an ambitious project. With the aim of bringing together 29 delegations and a total of 221 participants from two continents, the summit is intended as one of the largest simulations of the NATO decision-making process. The participation of delegations from Baltic and Eastern European countries, alongside an impressive number of delegations from the United States, Canada and Western Europe means that Model NATO Youth Summit goes well beyond the inter-university and regional levels.

We have witnessed how tensions among civilizations, religions and cultures have inevitably grown in the last couple of years. Thus, it is essential to advance cross-cultural understanding and build inclusive societies. It is our belief that the youth play a crucial role in achieving these goals. We hope that the Model NATO Youth Summit will serve as a platform for young delegates, with different backgrounds, to share their ideas and to work together. Students from the 28 universities around the world will therefore have the opportunity to engage in productive debates, and to network during special events prepared for them.

Participating in Model NATO simulations unites us, and reflects our common interest in broadening our understanding of global problems, and finding enduring solutions to these challenges. Being able to respect differences of opinion, compromise, build consensus and negotiate, are important skills you will acquire, that will serve you well in every sphere of your life. Mastering the art of diplomacy is not easy, and empowering yourself with such an ability at this young age is admirable.

While looking forward to welcoming you to this event, please accept the assurance of our highest consideration.
