It is with great pleasure and pride that we at the AAFB share the latest news of the Euro-BRICS Young Leaders’ Plateform and inform you about an important event initiated by our partner LEAP: the 1st Euro-BRICS Strategic Planning Meeting, which will take place in Paris from the 25th to the 30th of April 2016.
This event is designed to take the Euro-BRICS Youth endeavour to the next level: Team Building, Training and Brainstorming are on the agenda!
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 April 2016, 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, LEAP 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
LEAP 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. This SPM will strengthen the network and set the path for promising future activities…!
