Stepping into 2020 with the PeaceJam Europe Steering Committee

The Steering Committee of our project “Nobel Peace Laureates mentoring youth to build an inclusive Europe” gathered in Brussels last week, 29-30 January, at the European Peer Training Organisation (EPTO) office, to evaluate the current stage of the project as well plan for the Pan-EU Conference to be held in November 2020. 

First on the agenda, a visit to the Vrije Universiteit Brussel campus, where both the PeaceJam Conference in March and the Pan-EU Conference in November will be held. The morning included an informative presentation about the university and a tour around the campus facilities.
