Waves of Democracy – Berlin, scheduled for May 18 – 23, 2018
The tentative dates of WoD 2018 have been settled, in collaboration with the European Academy in Berlin and our project managers – Ifor Molenhuis, Andreas Guidi and Christin Knüpfer. An informal meeting was recently held in Berlin between IUC´s director Nina Nørgaard and Andrea Despot/Weronika Priesmeyer-Tkocz from the EAB on 7th of July, where an agreement about cooperation was decided upon. This meeting will be followed up in Berlin on September 18, where the draft program, etc. will be presented and discussed.
Our previous experiences managing the summer academies have been fruitful and instructive , and will influence our deliberations with regards to setting the agenda and fleshing out a final programme. A draft has already been circulated among our partners for discussion and further development, and will have elements like:
- presentations of good experiences/practices from youth projects
- participants´ gallery
- inputs from key people in politics and culture
- study visits and interaction with the city
- workshops on how to develop agendas for young people to debate/talk/be part of Europe/scenarios for a future Europe
- cultural/political manifestos to be produced and presented in Berlin/Brussels
- Advanced use of social media/blogs/creation of website
Will you volunteer your services to help this endeavour advance to its next step? We are looking for a talented web designer who can create and maintain a functional and attractive website for Waves of Democracy 2018. To express your interest, fill out the ‘Contact Us’ form on our homepage.
