The conference will see around 250 experts from all over Europe, including representatives of the European Commission, European parliament, Council of Europe, UNESCO, experts on youth, as well as famous personalities from culture and art, the TASR newswire wrote.

The issues to be discussed include those which impact lives and future careers of the young most, like migration, tolerance and multiculturalism,  informed the Education Ministry. The conference will also have accompanying events, such as announcing the result of the “Shining Stars of Europe” contest in which about 500 videos from 37 countries will compete. A view of the new trends in the lives of youths will also be interesting.

Apart from experts, musical celebrities like singer Celeste Buckingham and Madiana Asseraf, from the Eurovision song contest, will take part in the discussions.
