The World Youth Academy focused on five fundamental-principles: RESPECT, DIVERSITY, VISION, HOPE and ATTITUDE.
While the World Youth Academy shares goals in common with the United Nations Organization, particularly education, it is a completely independent and sovereign organization made of visionaries and young changemakers from all over the world. The WYAcademy does NOT belong to the United Nations Organization. The WYAcademy follows a unique format that combines lectures, visits to international organizations and workshops with practical hands-on experience on various topics of relevance: international security, peace and conflict negotiations, human rights, and development.
All lectures are given by high-ranking experts and practitioners who share their rich experiences with participants in an open and interactive setting. Through both group work and social activities, participants have the unique opportunity to form strong networks with like-minded peers and experts from various fields in an environment that fosters diversity, tolerance, cultural learning, and mutual understanding. During the program, students have the opportunity to experience institutions and international organizations first-hand and interact directly with policy experts, practitioners, and diplomats.
Gina is such a specialist on International Cooperation and Development.
Ariel works for Olami and studies international relations in Vienna´s University.
Sebastian studies a bachelor in political science at Vienna´s University.
