Education for the Present, Democracy for the Future - Conference


Young people reflecting on the past, debating on the present, envisioning a different future.

AEGEE-Budapest together with Europe on Track Project and the Civic Education Working Group, with the support of the Associations des Amis de Franck Biancheri, are happy to invite you to take part at the Franck Biancheri Award Conference 2017 – “Education for the present, Democracy for the future”

We are looking for active young people, concerned about the future of Europe, who are eager to meet same minded europeans, to exchange ideas and discuss education and democracy. Young people who concern themselves with the rise of populism, extreme ideas and the return of hate and separatist movements.

The conference will take place in the beautiful city of Budapest between the 21st and the 23rd of April at the Central European University. The event will address relevant questions around the role of education for a functional democratic society, as a solution for the unstable moment of crisis that is linked to a democratic deficit and a breach between the citizens and the institutions. This cycle has to be broken to make young people's voices heard!

The participation fee is € 30 which includes the following:

  • 2 nights accommodation in hostel

  • 21 April: opening ceremony dinner
    22 April: 3 meals
    23 April: breakfast and lunch

  • Coffee breaks

  • Conference materials

  • City tour

  • Social program
