Pour le Brésil was founded in September 2019 by Felipe Lauritzen, Vinícius Reis and Vivian Kawanami, all Brazilian students from the Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA). The association was founded with the purpose of promoting this fruitful exchange between Brazilian personalities and our leaders of tomorrow - the youth.
This dialogue between these two groups is a core principle of our conference, as we will have students from many different countries not only participating actively in the conference, but also involved in its organisation process.
