Living Europe

16.-23.09 2009


“World peace cannot be safeguarded without the making

of creative efforts proportionate to the dangers which

threaten it. The contribution which an organized and living

Europe can bring to civilization is indispensable to the

maintenance of peaceful relations.”


 

 

With these words expressed by French foreign minister Robert Schuman on 9 May 1950 the first move was made towards the creation of what is now known as the European Union. After 1989 the integration process was vastly accelerated. The revolutionsin central and eastern Europe offered the possibility to unite the whole continent on the basis of wealth and stability. Consequently, the Union was quickly enlarged to 15 and later to 27 member states. Commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall and thus the “reunification of Europe” the seminar will look at the history, present and future of the European Union as well as the chances and risks of European integration. Part of the program is also a oneday trip to Olsztyn. The work in international groups and the activating methods should make this seminar a truly intercultural experience.
