In association with the Peace Laureate’s Department of Education, Children of the Earth hosted this event where both academic discussions, as well as student workshops were held to explore this most relevant subject for our time. We met with professors and students in three phases in order to hear their input on these subjects.

We got acquainted with Jagiellonian University of Krakow’s academic community with an active exchange of ideas.
