Summer course 2019
In August 2019, we kicked off the inaugural edition of the Careers in the Common Good Summer Course. Through workshops on sustainability, human rights, and social entrepreneurship, nine young adults from six countries explored some of the many ways in which they can make a difference.
Participants heard personal career trajectories and struggles from young professionals across widely divergent industries, and they spent daily dedicated time on self-reflection. Between workshops, the group explored Budapest, cooked up a steaming vat of barszcz, and hiked deep into the Pilis forest. Participants also developed practical projects ranging from Internet literacy courses to implement in Serbia and the Czech Republic to a multilingual blog dedicated to making education information accessible.
