!!Young Europe: Realities, Dilemmas and Opportunities for the New Generation
!16 - 18 July 2014 
__[CONFERENCE SITE|http://www.ae2014barcelona.com]__ - __REGISTRATION NOW OPEN !__

Our world is changing rapidly. We are facing, and we will continue to face in the near future, serious social, medical and environmental problems, and the challenges will be especially felt in the few forthcoming decades, by the next generation.
\\ \\
Medical issues have human, social and technological aspects, matters of sustainability have a medical and social impact, and social questions are inextricably connected to health and environmental concerns. The problems do not belong each of them to a single, well circumscribed discipline. They are multi-faceted, and so the solutions require transversal thinking and expertise.
\\ \\
The medical, environmental and social realities, dilemmas and opportunities for the new generation are thus interlinked, and as such they should be tackled. This is the purpose of this Conference.
