 GreenXchange, which also participated in the YLC conference, held productive work sessions and prepared their presentation for the European Leadership Conference. Other YLC participants expressed interest in adapting the greenXchange model, a German – Israeli program, for their own countries.  

The Young Leadership Conference (YLC) included the greenXchange participants and formed a part of the European Leadership Conference (ELC). YLC began on Friday, March 28, and then merged with the ELC conference on Sunday evening. 
The 28 young professionals who participated in the YLC hailed from Germany, Israel, Greece, France, Spain and of course, Belgium. 

YLC started off with a bang, with an orientation and movie KKL-JNF in Numbers, before a fun and engaging getting-to-know you session led by head KKL-JNF emissary in Belgium Olivier Rafowicz. 

Prior to the conference, participants were instructed to prepare a creative two minute introduction about themselves for the opening session, a task that was embraced with great enthusiasm – one participant from Greece for example, wrote personalized lyrics to the famous Frank Sinatra song "I did it my way" about his life-story so far and sang it to an enthusiastic audience.
