Small, interesting country, our beautiful country

The IPA Section Switzerland looks forward to hosting the 2013 lnternational Youth Gathering.

The 2013 Youth Gathering has been designed for children of IPA members, who are between 16 and 17 years of age. Each IPA country will be allowed to send two

participants with an option for a third applicant, if there is room. The attendance of the participants must be authorised by the IPA Section in their home country. The number of participants is limited to 50 and will be handled on a "first come, first served" basis.

The gathering will be conducted in English, French, German and ltalian.

The tour will start in the centre of Switzerland and we want to show the diversity of our country to the participants: Culture, city-life, the Alps, and the beautiful lakesides in the West of Switzerland.

The programme offers a chance to experience a lifestyle which is not offered where masses assemble, and to get away from noise and traffic. lt will be an interesting journey.
