Jump to Comments

The Young Leader’s Summit will take place November 18th-20th in Lisbon, Portugal, on the sidelines of the 2010 NATO Summit. Hosted by the Atlantic Council of the United State’s Young Atlanticist Program, the Portuguese Atlantic Commission and the Atlantic Treat Association/Youth Atlantic Treat Association, the event brings together young professionals from all NATO and Partnership for Peace (PfP) countries, as well as Mediterranean Dialogue members.

The 2010 Young Atlanticist Summit will connect emerging leaders with one another and with Alliance leaders to discuss NATO’s strategic concept and other pressing issues facing the Alliance.  Those who have met with “Young Atlanticists” at previous NATO Summits include: President Barack Obama, Czech President Vaclav Havel, Turkish Prime Minister Recip Tayyip Erdogan, Afghan President Hamid Karzai, Georgian President Mikhael Saakashvili, U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell, British Foreign Secretary David Miliband, and NATO Secretaries General
Lord Robertson and Jaap de Hoop Scheffer.  In 2010 the organizing partners will again use their networks to arrange similar high-level meetings, where possible.
