The first European leadership programme

I believe that this initiative to create a new network that will train and promote new leaders, European Young Leaders, is utterly important. We need key figures to take up the European idea and translate it according to the needs of today's world. That is to say, we cannot go on living on what history has accomplished and i fully support this programme and I mean to be part of it because it is fundamental to delevop and strengthen this network of European Young Leaders.
