This year’s edition of the Visegrad Youth Forum has been truly exceptional. Not only did we manage to give a graphic redesign of the project’s visual identity, but to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the current format of the Visegrad Group, we were able to organize a cycle of side event in each capital city of the V4 for the very first time in project history.
This wouldn’t be able without the financial support of NATO’s Public Diplomacy Division, the International Visegrad Fund, Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic, the city of Banská Bystrica, the Banská Bystrica Self-Governing Region, the help of our institutional partners, namely the Faculty of Political Science and International Relations of the Matej Bel University, the Museum of the Slovak National Uprising, Rotaract Banská Bystrica, support from our commercial partners Lunter, DRU, Zvolenský, Urpiner and TATRATEA, and our partner organizations Corvinus Society for Foreign Affairs and Culture, Junior Diplomat Initiative and the SGH Foreign Affairs Club, which helped us organize each of the four side events prior to the final conference in Banská Bystrica. We would also like to thank all of our guests that spoke at the events in the respective V4 capitals and at the final conference’s panel discussion, as well as our mentors that oversaw the workshop sessions at the conference.
Last but not least, all this wouldn’t be possible without you, the future leaders of the V4, the support and enthusiasm of which shows that it’s all worth the effort. To mark this special occasion, we decided to publish a brochure detailing this year’s Visegrad Youth Forum, which includes all reports and outputs from the conference.
Both the graphic redesign and the brochure were designed by our graphic mastermind, Euro-Atlantic Center Vice-President Martin Mancoš. Once again, thank you for making this year’s VYF truly one of a kind! See you next year!
