|Leadership for sustainable Serbia is a project that aims to educate and motivate young people to take initiative and do something positive for themselves and the society they live in. Project is starting in October with the “New Leaders Conference” that will last for two days.

New Leaders Conference is project organized by student organization, AIESEC in Serbia.

Taking in mind that sustainable development is one of the things AIESEC is trying to implement in our society, this conference represents unique combination of leadership and sustainable development.
First day of the conference will be mainly about introducing the whole topic of leadership development to our delegates and how can they lead a sustainable change in their society. Opening and key note speech will be followed with two workshops on topic of the conference and will be closed with final wrap up of the day.
We took one whole day for offering opportunities for impactful leadership to our delegates. During the second day we will share experiences of people that dared to try, and made some change and also present what the follow up of the conference is going to be.
Everybody who is between 17 and 29 years old can apply to take part on this event. Conference is international so it will also represent a great opportunity for every delegate to create international network during these two days.
