About the event
Change begins by imagining this world differently. Can you? Are you interested in activism, politics and public affairs in general? Become one of the 15 young active people and sign up! Participate in three-weekend training sessions in different corners of the Czech Republic and take an international study tour to Brussels. Starting with the first weekend in October, in March 2020 we meet in Brussels with young people from Finland, Hungary, Spain, Poland and Croatia, who are undergoing similar training courses.
What can you learn?
How to step into public space. We will discuss the various fields of politics together with activists, journalists, academics, experts, and politicians, who come to the training.
We will awaken your sense of initiative and support your skills in the field of activism, teamwork, campaigning, or work with the media. Together we will go through a whole range of approaches and tools that can change the world around. It is important for us to connect theory and practice.
In addition to practical skills, we will focus on important cross-cutting themes such as climate change, education, feminism, migration and more.

Institute of active citizenship will cover the remaining sum. We don’t want anyone to be excluded because of the money and the amount of your contribution doesn’t play any role in the selection of the participants!
