YATA is widening the scope of our cooperation throughout the trans-Atlantic region. This time, in cooperation with ATA Estonia we are pleased to announce that we are sending several YATA participants to their event Baltic-Russia Youth Forum. The VII Baltic-Russia Youth Forum (BRYF) will take place on September 5-8, 2017 in Tallinn, Estonia.

The forum is organised in a cooperation with NATO Headquarters, Estonian Ministry of Defence and Friedrich Ebert Foundation. The forum will take place on the time of Estonian presidency of the Council of EU. The forum has its emphasis on the relationship between NATO, the Baltic States, Russia and events influencing our security. We are looking forward to the active participation of young professionals and students in the field of defence, security and international relations from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, Scandinavia and Eastern Partnership countries.

As YATA has a special arrangement with ATA Estonia, we have several places secured for YATA participants. The organisers will cover all accommodation and catering expenses for the selected participants, as well as travel expenses up to 100€ meaning that in case the ticket costs will exceed this sum, the participant has to cover the difference.
