Welcome to the YOUCEE site.
YOUCEE stands for European YOUth Conference commEmoration across bordErs and is an international youth conference in commemoration of the second World War and in particular the Battle of Arnhem(1944).
The conference is for students between 16 and 19 years of age, originating from 6 European countries. The conference will be held in the vicinity of Arnhem/Oosterbeek in the Netherlands and is subsidized, among others, by the city of Arnhem, the municipalities of Renkum, Ede, and Overbetuwe, The Airborne March Foudation, the Poorters of Arnhem, Rabobank Development Fund, the Saint Nicolas Brotherhood Foundation, and the Airborne Commemoration Foundation.
YOUCEE invites students from several European countries to the Netherlands to reflect on and discuss topics like war, peace, justice andinternational cooperation. The Battle of Arnhem (17th – 26th September 1944) is the starting point and the focus will be on the interaction between students as they learn about the achievements of Europe since 1944. What is life likein Europe in 2015, how do we perceive ourselves within the European borders and institutions of the modern day, what lessons have we learned fromthe Second World War and how do we apply them to life today? Thisinternational youth platform provides an opportunity for expressing personal ideas, opinions, and views in a multicultural setting and a relaxed atmosphere. The highlight will be the Arnhem Model United Nations conference on the 16th of September and the contributions towards, and attendance at the commemoration ceremonies on 16th, 17th and 19th of September.
Our theme for YOUCEE Conference 2016 is

We hope you will be able to learn from the past through the onference and use this awareness for the future.
