The ICD Young Leaders Forums are international networks of like-minded young individuals with an interest in developing, supporting, and sustaining intercultural relations. The first Young Leaders' Forum was developed in 2003, and we have since developed and launched a variety of different bilateral and multilateral forums that focus on a diverse range of relationships across the world. Over the past decade, the ICD Young Leaders' Forum has grown to become one of Europe’s largest independent cultural exchange organizations, hosting programs that facilitate interaction among young individuals of all cultural, academic, and professional backgrounds, from across the world.
The speakers during the conference will include leading figures and experts from international politics (including head of states and ministers), diplomacy, academia, culture & the arts, civil society, and the private sector.
These speakers will include a number of individuals from the ICD Advisory Board.
The forum is open to applications from students and young professionals with an active interest in art & music, cultural studies, international relations, political science, peace studies, and diplomacy, as well as other interested stakeholders from around the world.
