SUMMER SCHOOL ON NEW DEVELOPMENT COOPERATION: BREAKING THE CHAINS OF POVERTY

The increasing globalization of economic relations, technology transfer, social and cultural interactions is currently viewed as an unstoppable force. Although global economic growth has lifted the standards of life in many countries, it has failed to reduce poverty in the least developed parts of the world. The question here is how to address the complex issue of development cooperation, so that even failures would lead to constructive and working solutions. How can we learn to try and fail, and fail better?  

You will have an opportunity to discuss the reality of international development cooperation with Daniel Ogola, born and educated in Kenya, the founder of the Matibabu Foudation.

SUMMER SCHOOL ON EDUCATION: THE FUTURE OF THE SCHOOLS

The Summer School invites students to discuss the ideas brought about by the revolutionary approach to education with the faculty members, academics, researchers and professionals, as well as fellow students of various academic and cultural backgrounds.

Surrounded by the beauty of Prague, we will exchange ideas and seek answers to the questions: What is the purpose of education in the modern world? How shall the modern education system look like? What would be the values, content and structure of education?

SUMMER SCHOOL ON GLOBALIZATION 3.0: PRODUCTION AND CONSUMPTION

Whether we date the beginning of globalization to ancient times, the Middle Ages, the industrial revolution era or the post-World War II period, it is obvious that in the past few decades globalization has had a profound impact on business, finance, politics, culture and last but not least the consumption patterns of citizens of both the developed and developing countries.
