pushLAB and Global Pact invite you to participate in the fifth Summer school on activism for university students from all parts of Europe and the USA.
The summer school consists of a three-week long, intense and fully experimental training course.
By simulating the work of a real NGO you will learn all about developing your ideas to improve your community.
The Croatian town of Vukovar, where unemployment, ethnic segregation and destroyed houses are reality will serve as learning ground for putting your ideas into practice and will try to have a real impact on the lives of the citizens of Vukovar.
You will learn to work in a multicultural environment, consisting of a group of about 40 students. There will be American students of all backgrounds as well as students from all over Europe, including the youth of Vukovar. Together you will try to find solutions to actual problems in Vukovar, you will hang out, go out and learn about one another's differences and similarities.
