5 seminar to discuss ideas for the future
Milan, March-June 2009
Fondazione Italianieuropei organizes the course of political training "The crisis and the new global scenario", which will be held in Milan between March and June 2009. The course will be structured in four seminars - each one lasting four hours - and a conference open to the public. The audience of the course will be made of 50 young representatives of the public and private business, research, politics, and associationism, to be selected through a public competition.
The seminar will offer an opportunity for discussing the changes which are taking place in contemporary world with leading scholars and speakers. It is in fact absolutely crucial to give the younger generations, with diverse backgrounds, the opportunity to discuss and deepen the issues and the different opinions which are being discussed in international fora.
In order to ease the discussion, the course is reserved to no more than fifty participants and will be structured in five meetings, during which speakers will discuss the topic in agenda and will stimulate interaction among the young participants. Each seminar will last four hours, divided in two sessions: during the first one, two speakers will give their own contribution to the course; while the second session will be dedicated to a free debate, stimulated by a moderator, during which participants will be invited to share with the others opinions and proposals.
