Louise - Changing Natures

Belgrade #4

The highest honour to have been elected by my respected peers across Europe to be the new President of the European Youth Card Association #EYCA.

I'm so excited to be working with our talented Board on the next evolution of the network and support for our 37+ members across Europe, who represent over 6m cardholders!

I'm also the first ever female President of the Association - a significant moment in history during our 30th anniversary celebration year.

The very first - and fitting - presentation to the new Board tonight was from a group of young people from many of our members, who have worked alongside us over the past few days, sharing their vision for the next 30 years. They used co-design canvases and prototyping methods as their model and it was awe inspiring how much they achieved, how ambitious and positive they were. Loved it.

Our hosts here in Belgrade have done an incredible job - making everything run so smoothly and welcoming us so warmly. Huge congrats to Gazela, Milos and team!

Tomorrow, the work to build the next 30 years begins...tonight, we celebrated and gave thanks for this amazing European family x
