Highlights from the CSCD Youth Academy Award Ceremony 2023

On Thursday the 12th of October 2023, we celebrated the second successful year of the CSCD Youth Academy with an exclusive Award Ceremony for the graduates of 2023 as a testament to the power of youth and their potential to shape the world in remarkable ways. We want to take this special opportunity to share with you highlights from the special ceremony.

Upon arrival at the Award Ceremony, distinguished Ambassadors and guests were cordially welcomed.

The exclusive ceremony was a magnificent celebration of the future of diplomacy, leadership, and global change, all made possible by a  collaborative effort between CSCD (Center of Science & Commercial Diplomacy), the CSCD Youth Academy, the esteemed Dean of the Diplomatic Corps in Denmark, His Excellency Mr. Conrado Solari-Yrigoyen, Ambassador of Argentina to Denmark, and the distinguished Ambassadors who have gracefully received our students during the Spring and Fall Semesters of 2023.

The remarkable day was further made possible, not only by our co-hosts but also through the generous support of our sponsors. We are deeply grateful to:

Restaurant MASH – who presented the diplomatic corps in Denmark with sumptuous food, exquisite drinks, and first-class service matching high-level international standards.

Nordisk Aktuarservice, represented by CEO Mr. Klaus Krøier and Head of Administration Ms. Charlotte Wiese – who specializes in innovative actuarial analysis and data-driven risk assessment to the highly specialized insurance industry as well as large corporations, to enable companies to make better decisions by taking risk quantification into account.

And finally, our sponsor in Event Management THA Gateway – whose deeply valued efforts helped make this an unforgettable event.

We are deeply grateful to all sponsors for their unwavering commitment to nurturing the aspirations of our youth. Their contributions have enabled us to elevate this event and provide a platform for our young leaders to shine.
