Here you have the chance to combine academic lectures and ECTS credits with non-formal learning in a community of young Europeans - and build friendships and network for life.

The Programme focuses on national minorities as a case for European studies - what does it mean to be European and how do we shape the future of Europe? The course is open to everyone - both members of national minorities in Europe and for those interested in minority issues.

The school is situated in a green area in the outskirts on Flensburg, Germany, in the Danish-German border region, where Danes, Germans, Frisians and Sinti and Roma have lived side by side for centuries. The University of Southern Denmark (SDU) provides the academic input, while the Højskole provides lots of other classes, debates, lectures, and different activities - and through all this you will be staying, living, and going to class with other young people from all over Europe. Project partner is also the Youth of European Nationalities (YEN).

The price for all this? 500€ - in total, everything included.
