Today, young people across Europe and beyond are facing diverse challenges (economic, social, political). Leadership education in all its forms is a catalyst for empowerment, development and change. The Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP), with the support of Movetia, hosted a training involving 32 change makers, from 18 to 35 years old and coming from more than 10 different countries: Switzerland, North Macedonia, Albania, Kosovo, The Czech Republic, France, Greece, Germany, Romania, Palestine and Armenia.
During 7 days, they gained leadership skills and practical knowledge in order to enhance their social and personal competencies.
