Young Security Conference 2022: The End of Promises – Bridging Interpretations towards a New Era of European Security

Friday, June 3, 2022 - Saturday June 4, 2022

The Young Security Conference (YSC) Program is composed of the YSC Conference and its fellowship program and is organized by EuropaNova Germany. Two geopolitical dimensions will guide the YSC throughout the upcoming year: the Franco-German and transatlantic relationships, in addition to five thematic pillars: climate security, cyber security, European neighborhood security, health security, and European sovereignty and autonomy.

The European Union’s uniqueness stems from its diversity, as a place in which different nationalities, cultures, languages, and backgrounds can work together as one. Hence, the people who talk and think about Europe and shaping its future should reflect this diversity.

This objective, incorporating a plurality of backgrounds and perspectives in pursuit of bolstering civic engagement, has been at the core of YSC's mission since the beginning. Thanks to funding from the Franco-German University and the Franco-German Youth Office, the YSC has been uniting an intergenerational audience from across Europe / the globe since 2020 to critically discuss and reflect on diverse topics related to the EU's security, defense roadmaps and recent political innovations.

This conference will take place on June 3-4, 2022.
