Aims

People to People International aims to foster international understanding through direct people-to-people contacts. PTPI's Leadership Seminar is a special program to support and connect the leaders of PTPI chapters in Europe. The seminar enabled our leaders to meet, exchange experiences, improve cooperation, specify challenges and problems of PTPI and PTPI chapters in Europe, formulate goals to make PTPI and its programs more successful and develop strategies to realize those goals.
