The president

Hello everyone, my name is Helya and it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Tromsø! At a latitude of 69°42' N, we will be 370 kilometres north of the Arctic circle, which is quite possibly the furthest north any of us have ever been. On April 16th, you will meet young people from every corner of Europe and spend ten very intense and equally fun days with them. During the course of the session, not only will you be discussing issues such as European Security Policy, the financial crisis, climate change, the disaster on Haiti and data protection - all highly relevant questions - but you will also be given the opportunity to learn more about the Arctic region and its importance for the rest of the world. And better yet - you will do all of this together with over 300 young people from more than 30 countries. This is a fantastic opportunity to speak your mind, but also a fantastic opportunity to make new friends from just about every country in Europe! So prepare yourselves for a unique experience in an even more unique environment.
 
Looking forward to seeing you all in the Arctic,
 
Helya Houshmand
President of Tromsø 2010 - High North, High Temperature
