The Young Leaders will meet in Tallinn for a three-day seminar on inter-regional cooperation for a new generation, exploring how interaction between civil society, technology, business and politics is rapidly changing and the effect this will have on citizens and communities across Europe. Sessions include: navigating a new world order: re-thinking neoliberalism, Estonia’s digital success story, reaching new audiences through the arts, and the future of work in a digital age.
