After a long time of digital trainings and courses, Understanding Europe is slowly turning back to the “new normal”. Combining both of best worlds, this years’ European Summer School was a hybrid meeting, with 14 Peer Educators and 6 Fellows participating on site, while 3 Peer Educators and 2 Fellows joined digitally.

The program included several trainings on Understanding Europe’s educational approaches and didactical methods. In addition, our 2021 Fellows introduced their new workshops on topics related to Digital Europe and Media and Democracy. We were also joined by external experts, who offered an Anti-Racism training and discussed the topic of “Critical Youth Citizenship” with the participants.
