On 28 April 2022, 25 young professionals and students from 25 OSCE participating States began the five-month “Perspectives 20-30 Online Academy” 2nd Edition. The Office of the OSCE Secretary General, in partnership with the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights, the OSCE Academy in Bishkek, and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Regional Office for Cooperation and Peace in Europe strongly supports this initiative.
The programme offers youth a unique opportunity to actively contribute to the OSCE security debate while gaining practical and diplomatic skills. Through interactive webinars led by the OSCE Representatives and Experts, participants will learn about OSCE history and its work, as well as develop their skills in writing, political analysis and interview techniques. The programme will also enhance their skills in public speaking, messaging and persuasion.
