NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen at Young Atlanticist Summit

Hosted by the Atlantic Council and The Chicago Council on Global Affairs, the Young Atlanticist Summit was the primary public diplomacy event at the 2012 Chicago Summit that took place from May 19-21.

It provided nearly 250 young professional leaders—the decision-makers of tomorrow—dynamic opportunities to engage with the leaders of today. Including members of parliament, CEOs, academics, government officials, military veterans, and journalists—aged 25-35—the delegates represented all countries of the NATO Alliance, as well as partner nations such as Australia and Afghanistan.
