On 16 September 2022, the closing ceremony of the five-month “Perspectives 20-30 Online Academy” was held at Hofburg (OSCE) in Vienna. During the five months, 25 young professionals and students from 25 OSCE participating States learned about OSCE history and its work, as well as developed their skills in writing, political analysis and interview techniques. The programme also enhanced their skills in public speaking, messaging and persuasion. Interactive webinars were led by the OSCE Representatives and Experts.
This online programme aimed to display the contributions that young women and men are making to the OSCE’s efforts to advance peace and security, as well as to increase the visibility of the OSCE’s work among young people.
It is an initiative of 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.
