The Faith & Politics Workshop in Venice: 14 – 21 August

These one-week-long workshop series in the historic city of Venice are based on Ignatian spirituality. Jesuits are to be found in every part of the world – always drawing from their Catholic heritage and seeking dialogue with others.
The workshop will help you to reflect on your own life in the company of others and in the spirit of community and trust. It is all about conversation. You will not be hearing long lectures. The opportunity of a deeply personal kind of learning takes place in this environment.

Eco Summer Camp: 25 August – 1 September

We are fighting against the environmental degradation of our planet and now, more than ever, every one of us as individuals must assume our responsibility to make change happen.
This is what  the Eco Summer Camp aims for: to make you experience  how it feels  to be part of  a community, what it means to live in a collective world, in a world where we are not mere consumers living in our own small universe.

Apply to the European Leadership Programme (ELP) by 15 September

The  Programme is divided into five core segments.
