What is a working group?
The working groups will allow participants to actively engage in the General assembly by working on a concrete initiative throughout the week with a select group of 30 inspiring members of the WYPW.
Being part of these working groups will require a minimum of 20 hours of involvement over the week. Participants of each working group will work on a specific project and will have the opportunity to take part in dedicated workshops and sessions such as leadership development, co-creation workshops, etc.
A maximum of 30 participants will be chosen to take part in each of the 5 working groups.
Registrations for the working groups are now closed.
