The League of Romanian Students Abroad (LSRS) will bring together two generations of recognized experts and young specialists to come up with viable solutions for Romania’s most pressing problems.
The Romania Juna Forum, held from August 12-14 at the Romanian Banking Institute under the patronage of the National Bank and its governor Mugur Isarescu, will organize the participants into 11 work groups. Democracy and Justice, and National Identity are two of the themes to be debated by the established generation and young academic and professional achievers. Specialists from publishing and academia will moderate the discussions.
Graduates and PhD students from Harvard University, Oxford University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and London School of Economics (LSE) have already confirmed their participation in the forum. Top graduates and PhD students from the LSRS Gala 2011 will also attend.
The forum will end with the compilation of the Romania JunÄ Program, a document that will set out the main development drivers for Romania over 2011-2030.
It will be followed by a pilgrimage to Putna, on August 15, celebrating 140 years from the Great Putna Manifestation and the First Congress of Romanian Students throughout the World – events that marked the creation of the Romanian Modern State. Young people from across Romania are invited to join the demonstration.
The LSRS is the official forum for Romanian students and graduates of foreign universities. It promotes solidarity among its members, as valuable representatives of their country, and a positive attitude toward their return to Romania in the long term.
