Would you like to take part in an innovative Leadership defining event?
In July each year, we gather 60 to 100 students, young graduates and/or professionals aged 18 to 35, and 15 trainers from all development paths of life and fields of studies, and from all over the globe, in one venue, with one aim… to develop and inspire the leaders of tomorrow, today. For the past years LSS had led the way in multi-disciplinary student leadership events!
LSS is made possible by the collaboration of around 20 different student organisations, with central coordination and support from Zero Generation. Every year we look for ways to develop and improve this exciting event and this year should prove to be another awesome experience.
You can find more information and a LSS Testimonials on the LSS webpage.
For the next edition, we are looking for a motivated and proficient Organising Committee in an exciting country; a team that will be able to make this event as successful as the previous ones and enhance participants experience.
Interested? Apply to host LSS 2015… and don’t just keep it for yourself! Partner up with other NGOs! Collaboration is one of the core elements of LSS, we are looking for different NGOs cooperating to make LSS 2015 shared success on a local level.

What would you add to LSS history?
Leadership Summer School 2014 will welcome as Guest Speaker Dr. Frederik G. Pferdt. He is the Head of Innovation & Creativity Programs at Google and leads a talented team which catalyzes 10x thinking at Google by building a thriving innovation environment.
Frederik is co-founder of “The Garage” at the Center for Design Research (d.school), Stanford University and research scholar at EdLab, Columbia University. As the founder of LearningDesign:Lab, he created award-winning user-centered design experiences for various groups — from kindergartners, to teachers, to CEOs.
As a Lecturer at Stanford University, he feels lucky to see students being empowered through user-centered, prototype-driven design so that they can do cool things that matter in the world. He currently lives in Silicon Valley with his wife and two sons, and draws inspiration from his boys’ childish minds and playfulness.
Frederik will animate an Innovation Lab workshop at Yeditepe University during the event.
