Virtual meeting with the 2020 Young Leaders Program Cohort

06/22/2020 to 06/25/2020

Due to the COVID-19 situation, the annual visitor program “Young Leaders Program” has been postponed until the health conditions allow the XXI edition to take place in Madrid and Valencia.

From June 22nd until June 25th, the Fundacion organized several virtual meetings in order to greet the 2020’s participants selected by the United States-Spain Council and learn more about their interests and expectations. The online sessions included a presentation by Charles Powell, Director of the Elcano Royal Institute, about the political and socio-economic situation of Spain and the impact of COVID-19. Additionally, a session was led by Lisa Pino (2013 edition) and Steve Cobb (2019 edition) where former participants shared their experiences and recommendations with the 2020 cohort. The program ended with a virtual tour of the Reina Sofia National Museum with Mauricio Macarrón, Historian and Professor of Art History.
