After six days spent in Poland, from September 18 – 24, within the project “Meet Europe in Poland 2011”, the group of 13 high school students returned to Serbia.
The participants were given a chance to visit a high school in Warsaw where they were able to interact, exchange experiences and talk about the EU, globalization and various other topics with Polish students who are members of the school’s European Club. The participants also visited the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as well as the Polish Parliament, where they had the opportunity to hear about Polish experiences regarding the European Union. This was especially interesting due to the fact that Poland is currently holding the Presidency of the Council of the European Union. The Copernicus Science Center, the University Library, the Warsaw Rising Museum and the Fryderyk Chopin Museum were also hosts of our group. Furthermore, participants visited the charming city of Wroclaw where they met with the city’s mayor, Mr. Rafał Dutkiewicz, who was on the list for the World Mayor Prize in 2008.
ISAC Fund would like to thank the Polish Embassy in Belgrade for their kind support for this project, with a hope that it will continue offering such projects in the near future.

ISAC Fund announces the final list of 13 outstanding candidates, who will take part in the upcoming project “Meet Europe in Poland 2011″ and visit Poland from 18 to 24 September 2011. The Selection Committee, consisting of the representatives of the Embassy of Poland in Belgrade and the ISAC Fund, had a very challenging task, taking into consideration the exceptional quality of all the applicants. After conducting personal interviews with the short-listed candidates for the project, the Committee made the final decision on the 13 participants in the program. Once again, we want to sincerely thank everyone who responded to this competition and who submitted their application. We are regret that on this occasion, we are unable to provide more seats on the final list. That is why the ISAC Fund will make every effort for this project to be repeated in order to provide as many high school students as possible with the opportunity to “meet Europe”.

Meet Europe in Poland 2011
ABOUT THE PROJECT
ISAC Fund, with the kind support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland and the Embassy of Poland in Belgrade, is announcing a new open competition for 3rd grade high school students from Serbia. The program will allow the group of 13 students to spend a week in Poland learning about EU institutions, the Polish educational system, culture, and its people. The trip to Poland will take place from September 18 – 24th, 2011. By applying for the membership in the European Union, Serbia has made an important political step on its road towards European integration. This process requires understanding and support of future young leaders of this country, and their active engagement. For these reasons, ISAC continues with its activities in young people’s education through direct learning experience of EU member states functioning, its culture and lifestyle. In this regard, visiting Poland, as one of the most populous states and the presiding of the Council of the EU in the second half of 2011., represents an exceptional and unique opportunity for program participants. Students will have the opportunity to visit the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Parliament, various government institutions, a local high school where they will meet their peers and participate in classroom activity, plus take part in various cultural activities.
