THE SESSION VISION &
THE CALL FOR VICE-PRESIDENTS AND CHAIRPERSONS
About LNC'18 You. The core foundation of the vision of this session and how it evolves is every single one of you. Whether it is your actual presence of the session or just an idea, a thought you are sending our way. It is our belief that each individual can participate in this event. The session theme of LNC'18; â€œOur wisdom and leadership - towards a sustainable futureâ€? - perfectly tying together the importance of becoming the leaders of tomorrow, of becoming more knowledgeable, of teaching others and learning ourselves. At LNC'18, we plan to discuss such important topics as culture, education and technology. After all, these are the driving features of today's youth and very often - EYP itself.
If you are an individual that wishes to become a part of an amazing team, as well share your knowledge and feedback with us, and learn together with us, LNC'18 is the place to be. Be prepared to have a lot of fun, to challenge yourself and others. Become an inspiration and an EYP ambassador, join us! Excited and ready, Your friends, Ilvija & Alastair
During the preparation period and the session itself, we plan to engage people from all over the world, whether they are familiar with the concept of EYP or not, to join our discussion platforms on social media and raise important questions and ideas outside of the platform. Many times, it can feel that EYP is a very exclusive environment - available to only those who have heard about it and have made it in time. We wish to break this barrier and educate as many people as we can - and you can help us. Whether you decide to apply, or you are just curious about the event, know that LNC'18 will be a chance and a discussion platform for everyone. If you know a person who would want to record a video, if you have a question to raise, if you want to follow us - reach out and we will get back to you! From 12th - 19th of August, 2018 (for officials) - the participants will convene to create what is the biggest event of EYP Latvia of the year. As Latvia celebrates 100 years of independence, the cultural aspect of the session will not be left behind - the evening programmes will not only allow to learn more about different cultures, but each participant will be able to shape their personal interests - being it participating in workshops, or visiting a particular place of interest during our excursion day. We hope that you will help us shape this event, engage in the upcoming discussions and learn together with us.
