Solidarity Academy 2014 in Poland

The Solidarity Academy is an international educational project aimed at maintaining and developing the tradition of the Solidarity Movement.
During the project, 15 young journalists will have an 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.

The aim of this year’s Solidarity Academy is to raise awareness among young journalists about aspects of multiculturalism and solidarity with nations fighting for freedom as well as integrating young contributors to New Eastern Europe.

Workshops will be both theoretical and practical. Participants will have an opportunity to take part in shared activities but they will also be divided into smaller groups during the journalistic workshops and comfy groups. The result of the journalistic workshops will be the final publication and the debate/panel discussion – fully prepared by the participants with the support of experts.

The working language of the Solidarity Academy is English. Journalists and writers from around the world can apply to attend the weeklong program.

Organizers cover the costs of travel (up to 200 €) and the participants’ stay in Gdańsk.  All applications must be received by 12th October 2014. For more information, please, follow the weblink.
