Update: Coronavirus Outbreak

YLP Mediterranean 2020

Update due to Coronavirus Outbreak

Message from the YLP Secretariat


Dear applicants,

We would like to thank you for your enthusiasm and interest in our programme. We were delighted to receive such a high level of interest for our Young Leadership Programme.

Importantly, we would like to inform you that due to the current outbreak of COVID-19 it is proving difficult to keep the original dates for the course.  This is because the organisation of the course will require international travel for participants and speakers, and it was designed as an intensive face to face course.

We have therefore decided to monitor the developments of the outbreak and postpone the course to a future date to be agreed. It is possible that the course will be held this autumn but there is no confirmation of the exact dates yet.

We will keep you informed of any decisions regarding the dates of the course. Despite this, we have decided to go ahead with the selection of the candidates, and we plan to complete the evaluation before Easter.

Successful candidates may be invited to an online introductory meeting, to be held around the original dates of the course.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us,


Best Regards,

The YLP Secretariat
