We are pleased to inform you that the Robert Schuman Institute (RSI) in cooperation with the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Hungarian Office are organizing Imagining the post-Covid Visegrad 4summer school, with the major focus on plausible post-pandemic development and recovery scenarios for political, social, economic and environment sectors in V4 countries. In the course of 2,5 days our target group (EPP sister party youth reps from V4) will have a chance to brainstorm ideas, discuss applicable solutions based on local capacities, capabilities and legislative framework, and develop roadmaps for transitioning out of the crisis, damage mitigation, and rebuilding health, economic, and social systems. More specifically, the attendees will:
