Summer exchange and empowerment experience for young Europeans from Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic
26 – 31 July 2016
Given the new and diverse challenges Europe is facing these days, it is important to maintain the dialogue between young Europeans from the neighboring countries Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.
Therefore, the European Academy Berlin, in cooperation with the Polish Robert Schuman Foundation, Warsaw and Kuro Hradec Králové, Culture and Volunteering, will bring together 24 young Europeans from the three countries within in the framework of the summer exchange and empowerment experience “enter:trust”, taking place from 26 – 31 July 2016 in Berlin.
“enter:trust” seeks to foster a culture of debate and constructive criticism, to raise understanding for each other’s opinions and to regain trust in European cooperation.
The program gives the participants the possibility to debate on German-Polish-Czech relations and current European challenges. The working language is English. For six days, the following issues will be discussed:
- Drifting apart in Europe? Problems – perceptions – points of view
- Europe – a part of me or apart from me? Hopes, fears and challenges of the young generation
- Pluralism, Diversity, Integration in Europe – case study Berlin
- Lügenpresse! – Freedom of speech and its limits
Although we are able to cover most of the costs (five nights in a double/triple room, incl. board and transportation costs within the program), we need to charge a small participation fee: 129 € for German participants and 99 € for Polish and Czech participants. A partial refund of travel costs is possible.
Please apply until 30th of June 2016.
