We are inviting 30 young leaders aged between 28 and 38, from Turkey, Germany and other European countries to participate in the programme. (The locations may be changed if the political situation requires this.)

In workshops, lectures and intercultural trainings, the fellows will enter into interactive discussions with each other and share their sector- and country-specific perspectives. Internationally renowned Co-Deans, Ms Ümit Boyner and Mr. Ruprecht Polenz, are supervising the programme. Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the European Union, supports the Forum as patroness.
