What is it about?

The Young Leaders Program gathers each year around 20 high-profile young leaders from the region with a clear two-fold goal: to promote and advance progressive leadership within society; and to develop the regional network, based on shared values and common interests. Participants are required to have a high level of English fluency, as it is the working language of the program. Aspen Institute Romania will cover tuition costs, accommodation and meals, leaving participants to only cover their transportation expenses to and from Romania.
