Fear you have missed out on two of the most exciting student events for liberty on October 20 in Europe?
Due to a high volume of demand, we have extended deadlines for our ESFL October conferences! Hurry to register for the Stockholm conference by OCTOBER 8, 2012 before we run out of space!
The Stockholm Regional Conference will be the liberty-oriented conference taking place in Northern Europe this fall. Is the welfare state the human Utopia we all dreamt about? Or are efficiency and even human lives compromised for equally bad systems? What is Gender equality? Is it a means to a higher political end or, from the Northern European model, is it the highest political end? These and many more questions will be discussed in Stockholm. A 10 Euros registration fee, thanks to our generous supporters, covers everything from meals to the evening dinner and social. You’ll have the opportunity to network and meet students and liberty advocates from all over Europe, as well as get loads of free books and resources to take back to your university.

For all Italian-speaking students, the first ESFL Regional Conference in Italy will be held at the University of Turin on Saturday October 20, 2012. In addition to lectures and discussions with the speakers and presenters, there will also be specific workshops aimed to help students improve their leadership skills and become more effective activists. And, most important of all, attendees will have the opportunity throughout the day and at the evening social to build friendships and inspire each other to work together for liberty.
Already confirmed speakers include very important figures in the Italian liberty movement from both business and academia. Among other we will have the pleasure to welcome in Turin Riccardo Cappello (President of AGICONSUL), Alessandro De Nicola (Partner at Orrick and President of the Adam Smith Institute), Leonardo Facco (editor and leader of Movimento Libertario), Carlo Messina (CEO of YESmoke) and Alberto Mingardi (Director General of Istituto Bruno Leoni).
