MILSET Europe is a European non-governmental, non-profit and politically independent youth organisation, created from member organisations of MILSET (International Movement for Leisure Activities in Science & Technology) holding their seat in Europe. These organisations work in the field of education, focusing on the organisation of science-and-technology activities for young people.
MILSET was founded in 1987 in Quebec, during the first Expo-Sciences International. Due to its constant growth, various regional branches have been formed to-date, namely,
- MILSET Europe
- MILSET Amlat (Latin America)
- MILSET Noram (North America)
- MILSET Africa
- MILSET Asia
Joining MILSET is adhering to its charter; a movement which participates in the local development of scientific and technical education in leisure time, promotes international cooperation, citizenship and peace, by practicing sciences and technology in a spirit of respect, understanding and solidarity within different geographic and spiritual communities.
Thanks to MILSET, tens of thousands of young people have already met to exchange and make the most of their creations, discuss with researchers, youth leaders and industrialists. These young people have developed projects together, discovered foreign languages and cultures, and have been trained to acquire new technologies.
