The Ypsilon Institute started a project named World for Y (W4Y) by which we enable all high guests coming to official visit to Slovenia to address the Slovenian youth. We believe that this is an excellent opportunity for young people to hear and feel the thinking of other nations, their views of the world and current problems, or simply to get to know new cultures and countries. We are preparing the W4Y events together with the University of Ljubljana, which provides place at one of the faculties. We already cooperate with the cabinets of the Slovenian Parliament, Government and several ministries. Therefore, we would kindly invite you to cooperate with us in this project and let us know when a prominent guest from abroad comes to your embassy and if he or she has interest to address the Slovenian youth.
