This collaboration aims at bringing together students as well as young adults across Europe with a connection to Greece's living breakthrough from collapse. These 3 partner organisations are ideal!
This is an invitation to actualise a strong dimension of the European idea: The real meeting, living and working together of its citizens, farmost its youth! Our objective is simply to really meet each other and work in creative ways, utilizing participatory methodologies, having Europe in the Centre and in an educational and holisting setting. We especially invite the learning from Greece, being in this critical transition, to inspire newness in an experiential way towards joint projects.

This idea is materialising in learning experiences democracy in Europe. Only when we meet and collaborate we bring up participatory leadership in action. Part of this project will involve media and amplification through them hence "the stage-bridge" across Europe will be amplified.
A successful outcome would be a productive summer school, a thriving community of young people being inspired and active in essential, meaningful for Europe and their personal and collective interests, work. An empowered network of young Europeans, evolving their selves and dreams of Europe.
The Summer School is an old yet very spacious format of learning and living together. In Rhodes, this "school" will be a learning space transformed by the quality of hospitality as well as innovative, participatory leadership methodologies, that enable the collective intelligence to emerge. The design of this learning space require process design and hosting that will be based on the participants gifts and qualities, the aims and scope of the gathering(s), the place.
I'm a Psychologist/Facilitator, who has believed and worked for the European Idea. As part of the ACC (An NGO aiming for creating lively spaces of learning where young Europeans would meet and learn together, see: http://www.acc.eu), I am still committed to offer my gifts for this purpose. It's NOW!
This is a unique invitation for young people, University students as well as young entrepreneurs who are really called to meet in a different way beyond the surface and then collaborate and co-create the projects they care most about for/in Europe.
Ideas coming from practice in the fields of diversity and practical experience for improvements. Connections and networks for catalysing the invitation. Methodological enrichment and creativity integrated again coming from good practice and a friendly, collaborative attitude. Inspiration for apply!
