Welcome to the official home page of the European Teenagers` Summit 2011!
Based on the National Children Summits, the federal association of German Young Nature Friends is organising the European Teenagers' Summit in Hanover (Germany). During the first week of October 2011, young people aged 15-20 years old from different European countries will gather for discussing challenges of environmentally sustainable development and equal opportunities under the slogan:
"Sustainabilityland... it's not a foreign country "
