“Think globally, act locally”. It is commonplace today that the world has become a global village and that everything is interconnected - economy, environment, resources, politics. The recent dramatic increase of migration and refugees reflects this in all clarity. However, the current situation in Europe puts our inclusive democratic societies at risk. If the fear of newcomers mixed with populist oversimplification of security concerns gains the upper hand this may well lead to an increase of self-centredness, closing-in and eventually to more discrimination, prejudice, stigmatisation of certain groups, and thus to increased exclusion and nationalism.

Latest information: In due time you will receive a link to an online questionnaire. We ask you to give us feedback on the training (content and organisation) as well as to briefly describe the main outcome of this training for
your professional development and ways in which you will share the information and what you have
learnt with other professionals in your context. 
Please complete the questionnaire right after your training while the experience is still vivid. It will only
take up to 15 minutes of your time and it will allow us to further improve our training offer.
Participants give automatic authorisation to the Secretariat to make use of their feedback.


Due to unforeseen financial circumstances, the Olympia summer school must unfortunately be cancelled.  A decision on an event in 2017 will be made as soon as possible
