Men need mentors and leaders. And as leaders we bear great responsibility.

This is an exclusive summit for men’s leaders. To meet, to network, to engage and to exchange ideas on how to shape the future of men in Europe.

Started in 2022 by Paul Lloyd Robson and Alexander Bard in Denmark we brought the EMLS to Berlin in 2023 and have been presenting it in conjunction with the long-running event MANN SEIN, Europe‘s largest men’s gathering with 300-500 participants.
