The Visegrad Summer School is educational programme 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 project aims to deepen knowledge on regional and
global challenges, eliminate mutual stereotypes and build ties and
friendly relations. Previous editions of the School were attended by
over 500 people from: Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia,
Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, France, Kyrgyzstan, Kosovo, Lithuania,
Macedonia, Moldova, Germany, Russia, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia and Ukraine.
The programme of the 12. edition includes lectures, debates and
workshops on current political, cultural and social challenges in the
regional, global and European perspective.In addition to experts and
intellectuals, we host Ambassadors, Ministers, European Union
representatives, academics, politicians, businessmen, journalists,
artists, representatives of national and local governments, as well as
NGOs. The participants, in smaller groups, work on development projects
that are presented at the closing session. Students are invited for
study visit to Malopolska region and attend artistic events in Krakow.
Multicultural session allows participants to search for common identity
as well as insight the cultures of the Visegrad countries. Some of the
debates, lectures and meetings are open to the public.
The Visegrad Summer School has been carried out by the Villa Decius
Association annually since 2002. Our idea is to create an alternative
platform to university for advanced studies on the Visegrad Group as
well as other Central and East European countries. The programme is an
opportunity for the participants to get acquainted with and discuss
current social, security, economic, political and cultural issues. It is
also an opportunity to learn about each other and start an international
cooperation between the people and the countries.
