I attended last year's AMENDS Summit at Stanford and was very impressed by the speakers and the way the whole event was conducted. This year's summit promises to be as exciting as ever!--Dr. Ramzi Salti, Lecturer in Arabic, Stanford University
Happy Fall! On behalf of the American Middle Eastern Network for Dialogue at Stanford University, we are honored to announce the launch of the AMENDS Talks from our 2012 Summit. These Talks are a truly unique opportunity to hear the voices of some of the leaders who at the forefront of the changes in the Middle East. We hope you will engage with the youth leaders' ideas, share the Talks with your family and friends, and seek ways to contribute to their movements and initiatives - or start projects of your own. Check out our promotional clip of the Talks. Your help spreading the AMENDS Talks will be invaluable in creating greater understanding between the United States and Middle East, and in ensuring that the voices of these innovative youth leaders are heard.
As we begin to embark on our second year, we hope you will continue to join us in our journey to enable some the most promising youth change agents from across the Middle East, North Africa, and United States to learn from each other, advance their work, and share, through TED style talks, their ideas and experiences with the world. To that end, the 2013 Delegate Application is now open. We are looking for youth leaders from all across the Middle East, North Africa, and the United States who are addressing social, political, or economic issues in innovative ways. The Summit will be held from April 9 - 13, 2013, at Stanford University and the deadline to apply is October 26, 2012.
We look forward to continue working with you as we move forward into a our second year. Thank you for all your support.
