5th Economic Forum of Young Leaders 2010

The 5th Economic Forum of Young Leaders will take place between 7th and 11th of September 2010 in Nowy Sącz (close to Cracow), Poland. The Economic Forum of Young Leaders in Nowy Sącz is a meeting of young people from Europe and a venue for discussion about important processes in our continent and world as well as challenges for young generations of politicians, economists and leaders of NGOs. FORUM gives room for debate about the future of the European Union and its relation with neighbouring countries.

Each year, FORUM engages over 300 young leaders of political, economic, social, and non-governmental organisations from the European Union countries, Eastern Europe and the Caucasus, from altogether over 42 European countries, to come to Poland to Nowy Sącz.

The venue of the conference is determined by a partner programme – the Economic Forum in Krynica. Subsequently, outstanding politicians, economists, businessmen and heads of the countries, governments and corporations can participate not only in the “central - European Davos” but also have an opportunity to meet Young Leaders in Nowy Sącz and to share experience, knowledge and to answer questions bothering young people. Guests of the Economic Forum of Young Leaders 2010 will be outstanding politicians, economists, and leaders.
