Teaching Europe

10-17 December 2006
Sofia, Bulgaria

Europe House-Sofia and the National Student Confederation have the pleasure
of inviting you to participate in the international seminar "Teaching
The idea for the project came up in connection with Plan D of the European
Commission for Democracy, Dialogue and Debate.

The necessity for information about the processes on the continent, as well
as the need for building leadership skills in young people aiming at
awakening their civil consciousness and acceptance of the common European
values, are some of the basic motives, which have provoked the initiation of
this project.

We are all Europe and Europe is everywhere. The European project must not be
perceived as an elite project but as an important part of life for everyone.

The main objective of the project is to give practical knowledge to the
participants about the way EU works.

The project will involve governmental officials, elected representatives, as
well as scholars, activists of civil society organizations and, most
importantly, the participants themselves in a series of debates.
The political, social, economic and cultural aspects that the seminar
addresses will contribute to the broader involvement of the citizens in the
integration process and will turn them into active participants in the
future of Europe debate.

Their involvement into the debate, is a condition for overcoming stereotypes
and national barriers in the context of creating a common European identity
in terms of better knowledge of EU issues.

The rich social program, including a sightseeing trip to the Rila Monastery,
one of the most significant and picturesque monuments on the Balkans, will
enable the participants to feel the atmosphere of Bulgaria - an
ever-evolving and modern country with great cultural heritage and
traditions, dating back from Roman and Byzantine times.

Welcome to the [Sofia] weblog, a part of the Kakanien Revisited weblog network. The Team - Dimiter, Assen and Mira - all three PhD students in the Department of History and Theory of Culture at the Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski" will try to create an image - although sometimes a faceted and incoherent one - of the Bulgarian academia, culture, ongoing events, ideas, realities and virtual spaces. All of you - our readers - are warmheartedly invited to join us in this endeavor with your comments and suggestions.
