The 7th Youth Leadership Workshop was held in November in Amsterdam, Netherlands, and featured the highest number of female participants in a youth workshop ever. Tomorrow’s leaders came from all over the world—from Costa Rica to Azerbaijan to New Zealand. The event covered topics such as youth participation, outreach, advocacy, project planning, and fundraising.
The first day of the workshop focused on youth engagement and recruitment, and how to best get people committed to supporting the bleeding disorders community. Later, there was a “Sharing of Best Practices” session, where several participants gave a presentation on access to care in their country, the activities of their national member organizations (NMOs), and the challenges they face in their countries.
