Mediterranean Bridges

Exceptionally this year an additional Young Leaders Conference about “Mediterranean Bridges” was held in Istanbul on May 12 and 13. The Conference was organized with the American Council on Germany, Atlantic Brücke, and the Sabanci Foundation.
The initiative was attended by 30 Young Leaders coming from Germany, Italy, United States, Turkey an North African countries, and the theme of the conference was approached from various perspectives: energy, telecommunications, immigration and media. The event has been an occasion of exploring new methods and outcomes for concrete engagement required in all fields to tackle the awakening of new aspirations from such neighboring countries as Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and other Maghreb and nearby countries as their relationship evolves with traditional and new partners.
