NATO Night 2021: The Next Generation

The Netherlands Atlantic Youth would like to invite you to attend NATO Night 2021: The Next Generation on the 8th of April 2021 starting at 19:30 (CEST). On this evening experts will discuss the greatest challenges to the Alliance now and in the coming decades. Together with the next generation of transatlantic leaders, we will explore the prospects for NATO’s way forward to continue fostering peace and safety worldwide.


As students and young professionals today did not experience the historical events that made the establishment of NATO of great importance, this generation might have a different perspective on the aims and relevance of the organization. Furthermore, new developments in a range of areas such as cyber and geopolitics have created new opportunities and threats. During NATO Night 2021, we invite students and young professionals to get involved in redefining NATO. In line with the plans for NATO 2030, we want to form an idea of how NATO should develop in the coming decade, together with our audience. Both young NATO experts as well as those who are not yet familiar with the ins and outs of NATO but are interested in the Alliance will be warmly welcomed to join and participate at NATO Night 2021.

Keynote Speaker: David H. Petraeus

We are honoured to welcome former general of the US army, David Howell Petraeus as our keynote speaker. Petraeus served as the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Prior to this he served the United States Army for 37 years, including as commander of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan and as commander of US forces in Iraq.
