  1. Please verify the authenticity of this programme,
    I tried sending my compeleted application to the designated email address “youthfoundation@europe.com” it didn’t go through, it kept failing then it showed errors when it eventually went through. I tried assessing there website, it didn’t go through.

    Even the venue is contradictory, is it Budapest or Singapore.

    I am having concerns about the valdity of the organisers and the conference.
    Please check and give me a reply via omitogunebenezer@gmail.com
