3rd OBESSU Summer School: “Share your Skills”
Mollina, Spain | 31st July – 7th August 2012
Invitation and Call Summer School
From the 31st July to the 7th August 2012, OBESSU is organising its 3rd Summer School entitled “Share your Skills” in Mollina, Spain.
The 3rd OBESSU Summer School “Share your Skills” will be a space for partner organisations to share their expertise, competences, knowledge and skills on a variety of topics related to their daily activities as school student organisations. OBESSU believes that there is a great potential within its platform and this event will aim at releasing and enhancing it.
We hereby open the call for a maximum of two participants for each member and observer organisation of OBESSU. We kindly remind you that OBESSU is a strong supporter of gender equality and encourages you to bear this in mind when composing your delegation. Due to financial and venue constraints, delegates attending the Extraordinary General Assembly should be the same as the participants to the Summer School.
Please find the Invitation and Call here. The registration has now been closed.
The Extraordinary General Assembly:
As you may be aware, at the recent General Assembly in Copenhagen on the 19th-20th May 2012 not all positions for the Board and Monitoring Committee were filled. Therefore, we have sent you the invitation to the Extraordinary General Assembly which will take place in Mollina, Spain, on 1st August 2012.
Due to financial and venue constraints, delegates should be the same as the participants to the Summer School which will take place from 31st July (arrival day) to 7thAugust (departure day).
For the documents and more information relating to the Extraordinary General Assembly, please go to this webpage.
More information about the Summer School:
Please find the first Info-Pack of the Summer School here.
This year’s summer school is based on the fact that OBESSU’s Member and Observer organisations have very diverse, deep and remarkable expertise developed through their work, passion, activism and creativity. Therefore most of the workshops will be run by the participants themselves having a dual role of facilitators and participants. The summer school will foster a Non-formal learning environment, using different learning approaches where you can expect a high knowledge transfer and skills to be acquired for both personal and organisational development. The continuous exchange of knowledge will be immensely profitable for everyone involved in the project and will create a great multipliers’ effect. We are expecting workshops on topics such as intercultural training, lobbying, campaigning, social media, youth policies, motivation, anti-discrimination, public speaking and more!
Arrival Date: 31st July 2012
Departure date: 7th August 201
Member and Observer organisations can submit applications for up to 2 participants to attend the Summer School. Due to financial and venue constraints, delegates attending the Extraordinary General Assembly should be the same as the participants to the Summer School.

Travel costs will be reimbursed after the Summer School.
