posted on Thursday, April 29, 2010 10:25 AM
Have you heard of YouPEC? YouPEC is the YOUth PErspective Conference on Biodiversity, a unique seminar that will be bringing 150 people from all over Europe to Belgium from the 1st to the 6th of July, to learn about, discuss and share knowledge and experience on biodiversity. We opted to choose biodiversity as the main theme of this conference, as 2010 has been declared the International Year of Biodiversity, and because 2010 is the year of the Belgian presidency of the European Union (July-December). But we will not only be learning and discussing about biodiversity, we will also develop a Youth Perspective on Biodiversity, a policy recommendation to the European policy makers! If you have not heard about it, you should definitely have a look at our website to find more details about the programme, more practical details... www.youpec2010.eu
Here in Belgium we are pretty busy with the preparation of the conference, looking for lecturers, carrying research etc... We visited the location recently and we can assure you that the conference will be taking place in very beautiful part of Belgium! Although applications have been closed a while ago, we have good news for some countries! There are still a number of places for young people from: Belgium, Estonia, France, Finland, Greece, Ireland, Lithuania, Latvia, Luxemburg, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom.
In attachment you will find an application for this second call of applications for YouPEC 2010, which you need to send to firstname.lastname@example.org. YouPEC is a special conference that will definitely leave a mark on you and will make you really aware of the biodiversity around us and of the factors threatening it! The best part though is sharing experience with other young people from other EU countries! The deadline to send us your application is the 10th of May. Please don't loose this opportunity!
