Elmer Cornejo (Belize, 2009) has been invited to participate in the Iberoamerican Conference 2013 in Panama (Vanguardia Iberoaméricana 2013 Panamá “Iberoámerica: Alianza para nuevos paradigmas”) this October 13th-16th. The conference recruits youth, community leaders, college students, and representatives of social and civic organizations that have worked in social causes in their communities. This year, over 200 young people of 22 countries will brainstorm and share their proposed solutions in addressing a variety of social, political, economic, and environmental issues in their countries. The proposed solutions will be shared at the inauguration of the XXIII Summit of Head of State and Governments of Latin America (XXIII Cumbre de Jefes de Estado y de Govierno de Iberoamérica) which will take place in Panama October 18th and 19th.
The GOJoven team congratulates Elmer for his participation in this conference and looks forward to hearing more about his experiences in Panama this year.
