3rd UNAOC Summer School – call for applications
The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) and the University of Coimbra, Portugal, in collaboration with a wide range of partners are organising the third summer school 'Bridging hearts, opening minds and doing things together' which will take place in Coimbra, 4-12 August 2012. The applications should be sent by 23 June 2012.
The aim of this Summer School is to bring together young people (from 18 to 30 years old) from various regions and different ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds, academic and professional profiles, as well as walks of life and interest.
The Alliance of Civilizations is a United Nations’ initiative that aims to improve understanding and cooperative relations among nations and peoples across cultures and religions and to help counter the forces that fuel polarization and extremism. It covers four main fields of action: education, youth, media and migration.
