Hun gemiddelde leeftijd ligt ook zo rond de 35 a 40 jaar. Het bezoek vond plaats in Tallinn, de hoofdstad van Estland en werd georganiseerd door The Academy of Liberalism. Hun missie is om meer kruisbestuiving te laten plaatsvinden tussen jonge liberalen in Europa en samen te zoeken naar nieuwe (liberale) ideeën voor huidige en toekomstige vraagstukken. Lees verder
