Just a month ago, YASI 2012 ended. In those 10 days, we had heated debates, held simulations, visited the European Institutions, learned a lot about other cultures, our European identity and above all, had much fun!!
Looking back at it, we can definitely say that YASI 2012 was a huge success and brought a two year circle of organizing this kind of ten-days summer seminars to a conclusion. It was a wonderful trip that was made so great thanks to all of our amazing participants and the people we met in those two years. Also, a big thank you goes out to all of the people who contacted us about the seminar, those who applied for it or helped us in any way to organize this huge project. Special regards go to our sponsors and host organizations for both years:
- Youth in Action Program
- U.S. Embassies
- Baerum Community
- Benjamin Franklin Transatlantic Fellows Institute (BFTF)
We also want to once again express how proud we are of YASI alumni who successfully set up their own follow-up projects: “Our Voice 2012” ( http://www.ourvoice2012.eu ) and “Young European Peers” ( http://www.youpeers.eu ). It is extremely satisfying and rewarding to see our alumni go on and make such great and successful new projects and we really hope and believe that YASI alumni will keep on creating initiatives likes these.
As for what lies in the future, the YASI organizing team is determined to continue the organization of conferences and seminars for young people. Therefore, we are currently working on new projects, about which you will be informed through this website and our facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/yasinstitute
So stay tuned and we hope to see you again in the near future!
The YASI team – 26th August 2012
