Field trips to destinations of geographical importance, conferences at focal points of world history, forums about issues with substance and relevant participants are the signature of our event calendar.
Kyrgyzstan, a landlocked country nestled in the sphere of influence of two major world powers, was the destination of this year’s European-American Young Leaders conference. The young nation experienced a turbulent past with two revolutions taking place in 2005 and 2010 and is now at the center of the Chinese “One Belt, One Road” initiative which made it the ideal place for the 38 young leaders to engage in discussions on the past, present and future of this beautiful country.
