Places are still available for young people at an equality and anti-racism conference in the Netherlands. The 'Call to Europe' Youth Leaders Conference on Human Rights, Social Inclusion and Youth Participation will  take place from 21 -27 March 2010 in Rotterdam and Amsterdam.

The conference, which Football Unites will be attending and organising a football tournament at, is planned for 150 participants from 14 countries, who represent national or international anti-racist, anti-fascist, refugee, human rights, youth and minority rights organisations. Active grass-roots groups from all over Europe are also invited. 18-28-year-olds will be given priority.

The conference website says,

"This international youth and human rights conference serves as a wake up call to policymakers and politicians in Europe. Held in Amsterdam and Rotterdam from the 21st to the 27th of March, this conference is an opportunity for young leaders to increase their leadership skills by providing them with a chance to facilitate peer to peer trainings and interactions that involve discussions and dialogue between participants, policy makers and experts."
