The time has come for the second edition of the ESN Academy, the biggest training event Eduk8 has ever organised! This year's edition will be held in the third biggest city in Hungary, Szeged from the 21st to the 26th of June.
What is the ESN Academy?
The ESN Academy is a 4 day event that will engage 100 ESNers and introduce them to a learning experience made of workshops based on non-formal education methods. The workshops will be delivered by ESNers from the different Pools of Eduk8 and there will be a wide range of workshops focused on soft skills development (such as teamwork, motivation, communication, etc).
The main topic for this year's ESN Academy is: "Peacebuilding through fostering intercultural dialogue". It might sound a bit unusual, but it is very relevant for our society at the moment and it provides a great opportunity for you to see how our work in ESN connects to it. Therefore, some of the workshops will focus on developing skills on our volunteers that can be used to promote a more peaceful Europe through intercultural learning.
Example topics: Designing intercultural activities for Erasmus students, Conflict Mediation, Intercultural communication, etc.
The participants will be able to choose from this range and put together their own schedule. It's you will be deciding your own learning experience!
Who can apply?
Everyone! This is an event for any ESNer despite of position or status. All it matters is that you are willing and interested to learn, meet ESNers from all over Europe and develop yourself!

The OC consist of motivated ESNers from ESN Hungary and ESN Szeged section. This is what they say about the event:"ESN Academy seems to be a great opportunity for our country to develop and it is also beneficial for ESN members from every country since Hungary is easily reachable and comparing to other European states it is much more affordable. We are eager to create an event which brings all the creative minds together and ends up with new ideas to help our organisation forward in the future. We truly believe that the location we choose would be perfect to initiate and establish a great working environment for the event."
