About the event
You will participate in a three-weekend training session taking place in different corners of the Czech Republic and in an international study tour to Brussels. The program starts on the first weekend of October 2021, and will closure in March 2022 as we meet in Brussels with young people from Finland, Hungary, Spain, Poland, Greece, and Croatia, who are undergoing similar training courses.
What can you learn?
How to step into the public space and make an impact. We will explore different fields in politics with activists, journalists, academics, experts, and politicians, who will be our guests as part of the training.
We will awake 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 and more.
