Hybrid Virtual and In-person European Student Leadership Conference

Each year, Global Brigades hosts a European leadership conference for student leaders to share best practices, meet with staff to discuss programs and gather with other passionate leaders.

October 9th, 2021 | From your Computer or at the University of Birmingham

The 11th annual 2021 European SLC will take place on October 9th,  virtually OR in-person.

The conference will bring together students, staff and volunteers from across the European network to discuss important topics with Global Brigades staff and board members. This year’s conference will focus on learning more about Global Brigades, health and the poverty cycle, leadership development and fundraising and recruitment. Together we will explore what makes a brigade tick, from the start of the process at the beginning of the academic year, to the follow up after the brigade and the establishment of a new leadership team for the process to be repeated the next year, learn more about the organization and engage in meaningful discussion about sustainable development work.
