The United States Meets Germany: A Forum for Young Leaders
Berlin, November 10th-14th, 2008
The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy (ICD) is pleased to announce The United States Meets Germany: A Forum for Young Leaders (USAMG) taking place in Berlin from November 10th to November 14th, 2008. The ICD is now accepting applications for participants interested in taking part in this Forum.
The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy is an international, not-for-profit and non-governmental organization concerned with the promotion of inter-cultural understanding, through research, bi-lateral and multi-lateral programs and leadership initiatives. To learn more about the ICD, please visit our website: www.culturaldiplomacy.org.
The United States Meets Germany: A Forum for Young Leaders is designed with the intention of bringing together young, influential people from both sides of the Atlantic in order for them to gain insight into cultural diplomacy, exchange ideas and experiences and learn from influential players already working in the field. Participants will develop contacts on both a social and professional level, and participate in challenging discussions. The Forum will therefore produce a dynamic, informed group of Young Leaders who are aware of the potential for cultural diplomacy and have the necessary resources to organize their own initiatives. It is hoped that these participants might cooperate on independent initiatives together in their future. Ultimately the USAMG Forum will improve understanding between the US and Germany, and improve future cooperation and exchange between the two countries.
As a key part of the Forum, the ICD is looking for participants from the United States and Germany, as well as the wider international community, with a strong academic background and/or professional experience. Furthermore, participants should demonstrate leadership skills and have an active interest in international affairs with particular emphasis on the US-German bilateral relationship.
