Around 30 students and young professionals gathered at Aalborg Airbase in Denmark for the 29th annual Danish Atlantic Youth Seminar (DAYS 2014), which ran from 30 June to 6 July.

The seminar was designed to update the post-Cold War generation on current security challenges facing the Alliance and the rest of the world. High-level speakers from government and academia contributed to this year’s theme of “Conflicts and warfare in a globalised world”.

Participants from Europe, North America and the Caucasus had the opportunity to attend lectures, panel debates and workshops. Discussions covered a wide range of topics from Afghanistan and Ukraine to Syria and territorial disputes in the East China Sea.

Organised by the Danish Atlantic Treaty Association and co-sponsored by NATO, DAYS is a well-established and respected event. It provides a forum for young people who have experienced security issues to share their views in a relaxed and professional forum.
