Zurich (Switzerland), from April 9th till April 11th, 2010
Over the past few years, the Tibetan community in Europe has grown steadily. Today there are about 7’000 in about 20 countries. It is extremely important that the Tibetan youth have the opportunity to come together and talk about Tibetan politics, culture and society. On the 40th anniversary of the Tibetan Youth Association in Europe, the first Tibetan Youth Parliament will be held in Zurich. The purpose of the conference is to strengthen the political awareness and build a network of young Tibetans who are committed to the future of Tibet. We are honoured and fortunate that His Holiness the Dalai Lama will address this important conference. His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s presence emphasizes the importance of the political engagement of young Tibetans in Europe. We must rise up to this challenge. We are the future of Tibet. We are Tibet!
