Summer Institute in Hungary

The Summer Institute in Szeged, Hungary was the opening event of the pilot year of the cooperation in August 1999. The ten-day educational program focused on the educators first, equipping them with democratic teaching methods and volunteer involvement training. 32 participating teachers from Ukraine and Hungary also had the unique chance to share the cultural and historical heritage of their countries with other nationalities in the group.

The Summer Institute in Hungary was a great start. Building personal relationships among the teachers was crucial for the future success of the educational exchange project. Ukrainian and Hungarian participants were excellent Ambassadors of their country. Their knowledge, interest and commitment impressed everyone involved in the program.
