The Symposia encourage the cross-cultural and interdisciplinary dialogue and welcome people from a variety of backgrounds. However, despite their serious purpose, they have slightly informal character.

As you can imagine, such gatherings can be marvelously enjoyable. Spectacular meals prepared by women and men from local communities and  talented presenters are an important component of them.

The 2019 Symposium will take place outdoors close to nature. Forget about microphones and PowerPoint and be creative!!   Reimagine the concept of your lecture and push its boundaries to create immersive  moments.
