The Visegrad Summer School is a two-week educational programme organised by The Villa Decius Association, which provides an interdisciplinary learning space for young Czech, Hungarian, Polish and Slovak students, and for their peers from other Central and Eastern European countries.
The programme consists of lectures, panel debates and seminars on issues and challenges relevant to the Visegrad Group region, the European Union and the CEE countries. The topics cover current social, economic, political and cultural issues, such as global poverty, financial crisis, energy security, social responsibility of the media sector as well as European and national cultural identity and heritage.
As former editions have shown the Visegrad Summer School is an unique forum to build relations of acceptance, friendship and cooperation between young people, who will form political, cultural and economic elites of their countries in the near future.
Organisers provide educational programme and materials, special events, accommodation and board and local transportation in Cracow. Participants cover only travel costs to and from Cracow, their own insurance and the registration fee of 50 Euro.
The deadline for submitting applications is March 31st, 2009.
