This year's Congress will focus on the processes of decentralization. Not only will the participants discuss issues of systemic transformation, but also they will debate on the changing structure of the culture sector. Much attention will be paid to migrations and their impact on current situation in Central and Eastern Europe.
The analysis and diagnosis conducted within the project European Eastern University will constitute a starting point for deliberations on mobility of students and scientists. Moreover, the Congress will address such issues as the questions of memory, history of conflicts, reflection on human attitudes, current challenges in multicultural education and search for models of conciliation in Central and Eastern Europe.
This year's anniversaries, namely the 20th anniversary of the cooperation between Lublin and Lutsk, as well as the 25th anniversaries of the independence of Armenia and Ukraine, will profoundly resound in the debates either.
Dear Sir or Madam,
I would kindly like to invite you to this year's edition of the largest event of Eastern Poland!
I am extremely pleased with the growing interest in Eastern Europe Initiatives Congress. From one year to another we host more and more specialists in the fields of development and cross-border cooperation, who address current issues and share valuable experiences. On the one hand, it demonstrates the rank of the event, and on the other hand, it evidences constant need to organize such undertakings for numerous interested parties. Crucial is the fact that Lublin plays a leading role in cooperation between the European Union and Eastern Partnership states, particularly Ukraine.
I encourage you to familiarize yourself with the materials elaborated during the Congress, i.e. catalogues, recommendations, photo galleries and multimedia from previous editions of the event.
I sincerely hope that your participation in this year's Congress will bring you many professional benefits, while your stay in Lublin - a city honoured with European Heritage Label - will leave a lasting and positive impression.
Krzysztof Żuk, Ph.D.
Mayor of the City of Lublin
