YEL at the MiSK Global Forum 2018

It is with regret that Young European Leadership has decided to withdraw its participation from Misk Forum 2018. After careful consideration and consultations with the conference organizers, we feel that we are no longer able to achieve our goals and mission as an organization by sending a delegation as initially planned. We regret that we are unable to work with our Saudi and other international partners on this occasion, and hope that we may collaborate in the future.

It also included a lineup of high level speakers presenting through panels and TED-style talks on substantive issues around the themes of the “future of work”, youth entrepreneurship, millennials, and diversifying the local economy.
