The European Solidarity Centre, New Eastern Europe, Eastbook.eu and the Marshal of Pomeranian Voivodeship are pleased to invite young (20-30 years old) journalists to the eleventh edition of the Solidarity Academy which will be held in Gdańsk from September 6th to 13th 2015.
The Solidarity Academy is an international educational project aimed at maintaining and developing the tradition of the Solidarity Movement. Looking back at the social movement of Solidarity and the peaceful socio-political changes which took place both in Poland and throughout Eastern Europe, we can find an inspiration for solving problems in today’s world.
During the project, 16 young journalists will have the opportunity to expand their knowledge and learn skills necessary for the work of any young and ambitious journalist or a commentator/columnist who is not indifferent to issues such as geopolitics or liberation movements on both the global and the European scale.
Organizers cover the costs of travel (up to 400 zł/100 €) and the participants’ stay in Gdańsk and all costs connected with the trip to Kaliningrad (including costs of visa).
The agenda of this year’s Solidarity Academy is enclosed. The application form is available here.
Please note that all applications must be received by May 31st 2015.
We also invite you to watch the film about Solidarity Academy 2013 and Solidarity Academy 2014.
