2013 Youth Leadership Summit: A Recap
At the 2013 Sister Cities International Annual Conference in San Antonio, Texas, July 11-13, over 50 students from around the United States participated in the Sister Cities International Youth Leadership Summit. The Summit was designed to engage youth in the Sister Cities International network while exposing them to important international challenges and the ways in which different national experiences drive international cooperation on critical issues. The Summit culminated with a simulation intended to explore possible solutions to the critical environmental issues they had been exploring throughout the weekend. The simulation illustrated both the challenges and importance of international cooperation in tackling some of our most pressing global challenges.
