Inspiration to start up… your talents, your dreams and your future!
Europe is climbing up from an economic crisis that hit everyone. Whether we live in Romania, the Netherlands or Estonia, unemployment is an issue of all times and places. Unemployment also hits our generation. But sitting at home is not going to change the world. How do you define being successful? How do you become a young and inspiring Christian using your talents and dreams to build your future?
PerspectieF in collaboration with ECPYouth are organising a trip to Estonia to inspire and give Christian youth an opportunity to be a game-changer. This trip is about getting inspired by the startup culture of Estonia. This country hosts many incredible and promising companies in a new economic era. Through learning to think outside the box and engaging with innovative technology, new opportunities arise. However, new developments also bring challenges. In a time of continuous innovation we need to have checks and balances to see if these innovations are compatible with our daily, Christian inspiration; and also now when the government is engaging with these innovations.
ECPYouth is introducing a two-day Regional Conference in Estonia for you. This Regional Conference is meant to get you started to think about your own future. Maybe you are graduating soon, just started your first job or perhaps you still do not have a clue what you would like to do. These two days are meant to inspire you to start thinking about a lifestyle that is truly connected to your identity, your dreams and your future. Estonia with its vibrant startup examples provides the perfect context to get your innovative mind in a creative mind-set.
The program for Saturday includes two seminars on what do you need to do to become successful in your career or entrepreneurial activities and if and how the Church can help you. The Sunday program is devoted to worship as well as enjoying the rich and beautiful culture of Estonia.
Who can participate?
We welcome youth from both EU and non-EU countries interested in issues related to political engagement and public affairs as well as those that are interested in learning more practical skills about political activism. This event is specifically focused on youth from Estonia and other countries in the area. Places are limited! The participation fee is 50 euros. This fee will cover meals, the conference and your accommodation for 2 nights. You only have to pay for your own travel costs. The registration deadline is April 18th at 18.00 CET. Cancellation deadline is April 20th at 18.00 CET. After the cancellation deadline you are requested to pay the full fee. In the next few weeks more information will be given on the program as well as all the practical information.
