Programme of the AER Summer Academy in Vojvodina

AER Summer Academy 2019Rich, interactive and inspirational. The programme encompasses plenary lectures, panel discussions and interactive workshops, where participants will get an insight into different areas linked to the Summer Academy's topic. 

In the context of ongoing discussions on the Future of Europe, regions’ voices are of paramount importance not only to pave the way forward for the EU, but also to ensure that citizens are included in the (re)construction process of a more sustainable, social, prosperous and democratic Europe. The only direction to go in is one in which young people are included in EU decision making and at the centre of its policies.

Hence, the participating regions at the 2019 Summer Academy will show off, by exchanging innovative ideas and good practices in various fields, the potential of young people to bring about a social transformation and rethink the way Europe can meet the challenges of the future.

The 2019 Summer Academy will then provide a hub for mutual learning on various topics of great relevance for young people –in line with the European Youth Event Report 2018 – Speak up Europe!–:

Youth is democratic participation and European citizenship.

Youth is diversity and equal opportunities for all.

Youth is social entrepreneurship and sharing economy.

Youth is green development.

Last but not least, the 2019 Summer Academy programme is offering participants the exciting opportunity to visit the EXIT music festival and attend music shows on 4 July!

The lecturers will include distinguished experts in the areas relevant to this year’s Summer Academy topic, coming from the country and abroad, as well as representatives of the AER member regions actively involved in the organisation of the Summer Academy and representatives of European institutions and organisations.

Registrations will open by Spring 2019!
