defensa y yo 1.0 (2021)

2021 Edition defensa y yo

The program proved successful, igniting a passionate commitment among its participants. Group members proactively sought funding from the Department of State to establish an association dedicated to the promotion of security and defense issues in Spain, particularly, among youth. During its first year, GEOSEDE actively engaged in various initiatives and organized experiential learning trips across Spain. Destinations included Barcelona, the Basque Country, Seville, and a visit to the Navy Base of Rota. These trips have facilitated important discussions on security and defense matters, empowering participants to effect positive change.
