Looking for a guest speaker for the YES 2022

By April 12, 2022 No Comments

After 2 years of not being able to meet up in person, we are looking forward to making this YES the most memorable one yet. This is why we ask you all to reach into the depths of your mind and see if you could help us out with finding the right person! YES 2022 takes place in Werbellinsee, Germany, from 27 until 30 June 2022. 

Guest speakers will be part of our plenary sessions, taking place in the mornings and evenings. The idea of these plenaries is to tie together the topics of the day and to empower participants to make a difference in the world. Guest speakers are an important part of this, as they will bring an expert point of view on the topics.

We are looking for guest speakers to join us at the YES. They should be:

  • Expert/knowledgeable in (social) media literacy and/or cyber security
  • Speaks fluent English OR willing to speak with the help of a translator to English
  • Someone who understands the point of view of modern youth in Social Media
  • Understands working without other compensation than reimbursement for travel costs and accommodation on-site
  • Someone who can be inspirational, trustworthy and would be a good influence on our students and volunteers
  • Someone that can be looked up to, and who upholds the values and spirit of YFU
  • Is available at some point during the YES 2022. We can be flexible with exact time and date of the presentation.

  • Open-minded individual
  • Someone who can easily adapt to different age groups
  • Passionate about education and comfortable leading a conversation on the topics above.

What is in it for you:
