Here is information about the annual styrian Whitsun Dialogue kindly provided by our friends from IG Graz:
The styrian Whitsun Dialogue „Geist & Gegenwart“ will take place for the fifth time from 15th to 17th May 2013. The three day symposium brings together distinguished personalities to discuss Europe’s areas of tension and challenges along with the status of the process of European integration, always seeking to present critical yet positive thought leadership. Embracing the title “United States of Europe. Hope. Venture.“ renowned experts and opinion leaders engage in discussion and working groups to pursue intensive discussion with students from different European countries.
Precisely in view of the critical condition of economic development in several EU member states and the proliferation of popular EU scepticism, the question of the future of Europe is more pressing than ever. Do we wish to, indeed should we really become the United States of Europe? There are various questions to be addressed by the fifth Whitsun Dialogue from 15th to 17th May 2013 amongst the inspiring surroundings of Schloss Seggau.
The partizipation of students from all over Europe will be promoted by a scholarship program (incl. participation fee, accommodation, full board). In order to apply for a scholarship please send your application form via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and enclose Curriculum Vitae, performance record/list of academic grades and a one-page essay about “United States of Europe.
