PLAN PAÍS 2019 – CONFERENCE FOR VENEZUELAN STUDENTS & YOUNG PROFESSIONALS
Plan País Conference challenges young Venezuelans abroad to analyze the country’s crisis and propose innovative ideas to tackle it.
Venezuela’s current situation, as well as the physical distance of many of our participants with Venezuela, represents some of our real challenges. However, the promotion of civic and social conscience allows for young Venezuelans, as well as the overall Venezuelan community, to benefit from the innovative brainstorming that happens during the two days of discussion. Uniting the diaspora of young Venezuelans under the common goal of educating themselves so that they may become informed citizens, allows us to channel these thoughts as a community and become a more mature society with the tools necessary for change.
How Plan Pais Helps
Plan País is a two-day conference that aims at connecting young Venezuelans to the current situation in the country, providing an educational experience where participants can learn about the country’s most pressing issues, and also creating a network of young Venezuelans abroad who can collaborate in a number of projects. Previous conferences have been held in distinguished universities like Yale University, Georgetown, MIT, Columbia, the University of Texas at Austin, University of Florida, The George Washington University, and Boston University. The 2019 Plan Pais Conference will be held in March 2019 at the University of South Florida in Tampa.
The event is an impartial platform for young Venezuelans to discuss and create a vision for what they want the present and the future of Venezuela to look like. Renowned experts guide students in a variety of fields such as human rights, economics, education, infrastructure, oil & gas, health, education, communications, and others. This year the main theme is Youth: the catalyzer of Venezuela’s rebirth.
HOW WILL THE FUNDS BE USED?
Any donation, no matter how big or how small will help us reach our goal of having the most meaningful and empowering conference possible, with a large number of participants and experts attending from various parts of the world.
