Exploring New Shores with students of Syracuse University
On August 25, 2018 we had the pleasure to host a group of students from Syracuse University in New York, USA. Visiting Central Europe as part of “The European Identity Seminar“, they began in Berlin, Germany moved to Wroclaw, Poland and then Vienna, Austria. In each of the countries, they explored the multilayered nature of cultural and political identity of this region, shaped by, i.e. the two world wars of the 20th century and a relatively recent transition from communism to capitalism.
During the visit in Wrocław they had an opportunity to play New Shores – a Game for Democracy that touches upon similar topics, triggering discussion on the state of democracy and ways we can strengthen its position within Europe and beyond.
