The Collegium Civitas Foundation has announced a competition for this year’s high school graduates for a text about the future of Poland after the 2023 elections. “Share your ideas, fears, dreams to inspire others and change our common future for the better” – Jacek Żakowski, head of the Department of New Media and Journalism at Collegium Civitas, wrote in a letter to high school graduates.
The authors of the most interesting papers that could be sent by the end of May will receive financial prizes and free student books from leading non-public universities during the Concilium Civitas meeting.
Three days of discussion
The award ceremony will be accompanied by three-day discussion panels. The first day will be held under the slogan “Young Concilium”. On Friday, the awarded high school graduates will face Concilium professors in a discussion about their work. The day will end with the “Debate of generations”, in which both the winners of the competition and professors – Ireneusz Paweł Karolewski, Jan Kubik and Beata Javorcik will take part.
The “Annual Meeting of Concilium Civitas” is scheduled for Saturday. The topics of discussion panels will include “What economy, fool?”, “An idea for Poland” or “New map of the world”. The day will begin with the presentation of the Concilium Civitas Almanac 2023/2024, led by the former Commissioner for Human Rights Adam Bodnar.
The third day of meetings will open with presentations of the latest books by Concilium Civitas members. The event will be closed by the Great Annual Concilium Civitas Debate – “The State of the Game”, which will be moderated by Jacek Żakowski.
