Our first EU-sponsored programme a big success
The International Leadership Programme "Taking Vision to Action" was the first WYSE project to be funded by the EU programme Youth in Action.
The programme took place in September 2011 and brought together 27 amazing participants from 10 different countries. An inspiring and supportive learning environment was created in which the participants explored their potential as leaders and transformed their visions in concrete action plans and projects.
Still now, the community is very active and the participants are daily strengthening their network while exchanging experiences, ideas and best practices and developing new projects together!
This is what Suzan Salem, a participant from Egypt, wrote about her experience.
