The second part of the Danube School Series 2017 in Budapest from 23.7.- 30.7.2017 was a very successful and inspiring continuation of the first Danube Spring School in Novi Sad in May 2017. The great and very experienced team of the Andrássy Universität Budapest has organized diverse high-quality lectures and workshops in the dignified rooms of the University. In addition to the presentations of professors and academic lecturers, all 25 participants had to give short presentations in German Language about certain topics.
Main theme of the Summer School was „Der Donauraum im Fokus – Grenzen und Identitäten“ (Focusing on the Danube Region – boundaries and identities), central topics were e.g. border demarcations and identities, challenges of globalization, border regimes, economic interconnections, mobility and migration as well as transnational cooperation within the Danube Region.
The academic program was supplemented by visits to the Memento Park and excursions to Szentendre and the Old Jewish Quarter of Budapest.
One highlight of the program was as well the Workshop Day on Thursday, 27.7., when the Young Citizens Danube Network (YCDN) offered the simulation game workshop „CHROMA – Change Makers for the Right of Minorities in Avaria“.
Some participants of this Summer University as well from the Spring University in Novi Sad will also join us for the last Part of the Danube School Series in Ulm 2017, which will start in some weeks: From 24.9.-29.9. young people from the Danube region will discuss and with professors and lecturers as well as with local politicians all about the main theme: „Cities & Citizens in the Danube Region“.
