Thomas Elkjer Nissen, Special Consultant Royal Danish Defence College (Former co-chair of YATA Denmark, and current member of ATA board of trustees)

I think it is important for young people to know about what the 21st century security environment looks like, who the actors and international organizations are, and what their purpose and intentions are. To this end organizations like ATA / YATA play an important role in providing a practical and hands-on approach to and knowledge about for example NATO and the broader security architecture that Denmark is a part of.
