This future cannot work without thinking outside the box. There is no everyday life without global networks and cooperation. Goal of the International Youth Conference was and is to create a lasting effect on understanding, exchanges and tolerance across national borders.

During the 2nd conference the main focus lied on political issues like gender equality, sustainable living and globalization. As we face increasing political instabilities and extremist trends it is important to support all over the world young people’s commitment and openmindedness.
