Through collaboration, networking, and leadership training, the Summit seeks to create lasting solutions to pressing challenges and a global network of the most promising change agents in the United States and MENA region.
AMENDS Delegates attend a five-day summit at Koç University in Istanbul. Together they collaborate, advance their work, build connections, and share their ideas and experiences with the world.
The delegates collaborate on their social, political, and economic initiatives, participate in workshops on team-building and social entrepreneurship, engage with world leaders in networking events, and present their AMENDS Talks to their fellow youth leaders and the Stanford community.
