LET'S OPEN THE WORLD TO EUROPE'S 27 HOTTEST YOUNG TALENTS
Travel site momondo launches "Local Fighters" to open the world to a diversity of international young talents, all fighting for their big breakthrough in 2013
Travel is about seeing new places and meeting new faces. And in 2013, momondo is following 27 upcoming, new faces closely - the faces of a diversity of young talents, carefully chosen for the international sponsorship program "Local Fighters", because they fight with determination to reach their goals, realise their dreams, and showcase their unique talents to the world.
"momondo was launched as a consumer site, and we would like to stay a consumer site, so it's important for us to be out there among people in the real world, where life is being lived. Through the years, momondo has gained international attention, and we would like to use this attention to support the local "heroes" and talents around the world - young people who get up every morning and fight for what they believe in, who are driven by their passion and their desire to achieve extraordinary results. In other words, we support those who live their dream and who follow the idea that an open world is a better world - this is our modest contribution", says Martin Lumbye, Board of Directors at momondo.
momondo spotted the 27 "Local Fighters" in nine different countries around Europe, and they all represent a diversity of talent within sport, fashion, music and more. momondo's international sponsorship program is designed to encourage and inspire these young stars, helping turn the world's eyes in their direction.
In 2013, momondo will follow three "Local Fighters" in the UK:
"It is fantastic to be working on such an inspirational project, following the personal stories of these three UK talents throughout 2013. Through the program we hope to not only drive our Local Fighters forward, but also inspire all young people - proving that the world is open to them, and success at an early age is truly possible," says Leila Stocker, UK PR Director.
Throughout 2013, momondo will follow "Local Fighters" in the UK, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Germany, Russia, the Netherlands, France and Denmark.
