Who we are
Global Notebook, a youth-led startup based in The Hague, The Netherlands, emerged out of a conversation at a coffee table between two former classmates involved in a youth leadership project.
We had a common purpose: to create and run an organization which could offer experiences in international relations and law that would be helpful not only for the academic and professional aspirations of the delegates who participate but also for help the community at large.
