Beautiful weather on the seventh day of STP allowed us to enjoy the beauty of the Royal Lazienki. The sunbath was a pleasant beginning of the day, followed by a meeting with Klon/Jawor Association and “The Little Moscow” for dessert.
The seventh day of Study Tours to Poland is behind us. On Tuesday, the young leaders from Belarus, Ukraine and Russia went to the Royal Lazienki. Deep in the lush greenery, they discussed education systems of their countries.
Another point on the agenda was a meeting with Małgorzata Borowska from the Klon/Jawor Association. The participants listened to information about the third sector’s functioning in Poland. Few organisations know so much on the subject as Klon/Jawor. The meeting was held in the headquarters of the Unit for Social Innovation and Research at 20A Bracka Street.
STP can be tiring. That is why, despite the pressure of business, STP participants were given some spare time, so crucial for the full enjoyment of the visit. After that, we had a splendid dinner and watched “The Little Moscow”, directed by Waldemar Krzystek.
Study Tours to Poland was launched in 2004 and is part of the Polish-American Freedom Foundation’s “Region in Transition – RITA” Program, conducted since 2000 by the Education for Democracy Foundation. The Jan Nowak-Jeziorański College of Eastern Europe from Wrocław has been the STP coordinator since 2007. The “Borussia” Foundation from Olsztyn coordinates STP for students. The study visit from 17 to 29 April 2012 is conducted by Common Europe Foundation, the parent foundation of our portal Eastbook.eu.
