IDF Europe Youth Leadership Camp 2016
Rodon Hotel, Agros, Cyprus
11-17 July 2016
The IDF Europe Youth Leadership Camp is one of the pillars of IDF Europe activities. Supporting the development of advocacy capacities of youth, as well as encouraging knowledge sharing and replication of successful activities, is a core concern of IDF Europe.
Engaged youth are role models for their peers today and will be even better positioned to be effective influencers as they progress in their professional life and civic engagement.
The Leadership Camp long-term objective is to empower youth to engage in policy and advocacy-related activities by inspiring them through examples of positive leadership, and to build a strong and active pan-European network of young advocates for diabetes.
This year’s IDF Europe Youth Leadership Camp was hosted by the Cyprus Diabetic Association on 11-17 July in Agros, with the generous support of Eli Lilly, FEND, Medtronic and Roche.
A Selection Committee and a Programme development Committee formed by IDF Europe Board Members gave direction for the organization of the Leadership Camp.
From forty-four applications across the European region, twenty-three participants from as many countries were selected on the basis of their motivation for participation in the Camp, gender equality, and optimal geographic representation. Candidates from countries which were underrepresented in previous Camps were given special consideration.
