YOUTH PLATFORM OF THE EUROPEAN
TALENT SUPPORT NETWORK
We are excited to welcome you to the next Summit of the Youth Platform of the European Talent Support Network in Dublin, Ireland!
The Youth Platform of the European Talent Support Network was established after the first European Youth Summit, organized in the frame of the 15th International ECHA Conference in Vienna in March 2016. The Youth Platform aims to allow a more continuous cooperation of talented young people to:
– Discuss the development of gifted education in the countries of the Network from the youth perspective;
– Organize further European Youth Summits;
– Organize webinars, and other web-based seminars or interactive discussions;
– Create a more dynamic collaboration between talented young people of the Network supporting joint projects of talented young people.
Every member should be at least 14 years old and younger than 30.
This community is specially created for gifted and talented students
The students shall use English effectively (taking part in conversations, writing and understanding written texts, etc).
Youth Platform members must be interested in participating and promoting of the transnational cooperation of talented young people and to spend a bit of their free time with this subject.
The Summit next August will coincide with the 16th Conference of the European Council of Higher Ability, hosted by the Centre for Talented Youth Ireland. Participants will take part in workshops, seminars and attend parts of the ECHA Conference. Participants will be in charge of finding their own funding, this can be done through specific European Talent Centres, European Talent Points, Associated European Talent Centres, Associated European Talent Points, or paid for privately. Participants will be sent a link when payment is due, this will not be until the new year and the link can be sent to the appropriate Talent Centre or Talent Point for payment, or payment can be made directly. Participants will also be in charge of booking their own flights. Any participant under the age of 18 must have an accompanying chaperone. One chaperone can take charge of a group of participants if necessary. We will have our own staff on site as well.
