The ‘Europe Meets Russia’-team is pleased to announce the launch of its third program. *Europe Meets Russia: A Forum for Young Leaders*, will take place in Berlin from April 11th — April 16th, 2010.
Europe meets Russia has been designed with the intention of bringing together young individuals (mid-later stage students or with some young professionals – around 1-2 years experience) so that they can gain an insight into cultural diplomacy, exchange ideas and experiences, and learn from influential figures in the given field. Participants will develop contacts on social and professional levels through the participation of lectures, challenging workshops, and discussions. The Forum aims to examine the state of the European-Russian relationship today and to consider the role of cultural exchange in supporting this relationship.
