WorldSkills Champions Exchange prepares for the 2008 Youth Forum

With the buzz of the WorldSkills Competition etched fondly in our memory, September 2008 brings another exciting opportunity for WorldSkills Champions to reunite, reminisce and share their thoughts on the WorldSkills Competition at the 2008 WorldSkills Youth Forum.

Aside from sharing more good times, constructive discussion & feedback and creative thoughts, WorldSkills Champions will also enjoy an exciting social program which includes exploring the beautiful sights and sounds of Vienna, Austria alongside the WorldSkills General Assembly.

On hand to give a sneak preview of some of Vienna's greatest attractions is WorldSkills Champions Exchange representative and Youth Forum Assistant Co- ordinator from Austria, Cornelia Imser (Beauty Therapy):

"My favourite site in Austria is the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Schönbrunn Palace . Why? With spectacular gardens and parks, you will experience a magnificent world of Baroque culture. Inside the palace you'll learn all sorts of interesting facts about the imperial family and afterwards you can enjoy a relaxing stroll around the gardens. I would recommend that anyone who visits Vienna should visit Schönbrunn."

More information about the 2008 WorldSkills Youth Forum program, costs and workshops will be available by April. For more information please contact Christine Scoot
