Here’s to new beginnings: meet the 2021-23 ENGSO Youth Committee!
The 2021 Youth Assembly and the elections of a new committee (for the mandate of 2021-23) were held on Saturday, 12 June 2021. Due to the pandemic restrictions the event was organised in a virtual format.

Member of the committee:

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the 2019-21 committee members for their immense contribution to the development of ENGSO Youth.
The Youth Assembly began with the opening speeches from ENGSO President Stefan Bergh and ENGSO Youth chair Ugne Chmeliauskaite. The welcome session was followed by the presentation of the 2019-21 mandate, its projects, working groups, finances, communications, events and young delegates and alumni programmes. The best volunteer award went to Laura-Maria Tiidla. We would like to express our sincere thanks to all ENGSO Youth Young Delegates for their committee work and a valuable contribution to the development of the organization.
The new (2021-23 mandate) Young Delegates programme will be launched in July. The call will be published on our channels. The alumni programme, open to the former committee member and young delegates, is already up and running.
Thank you to the ENGSO members, friends and partners who attended the 2021 Youth Assembly.
