EUSTORY Next Generation Summit 2019 (15 – 19 October 2019 in Berlin)

General Remarks

Before applying for the EUSTORY Next Generation Summit 2019, please ensure that you will indeed be able to participate. The event might interfere with school or university schedules. If you require assistance to obtain leave from school or university, please contact the Summit Team (eustory@koerber-stiftung.de) to issue a request to the principal of your school or university. Applicants who are younger than 18 at the time of the Summit can only apply with the legal consent of a parent or legal guardian, given by the signed »Declaration of Consent for the Participation of Minors« which must be submitted online during the application process.

Costs

Participation in the Summit is mostly free of charge. The Summit Team will organise and cover the costs of food and accommodation in Berlin from the beginning of the event on 15 October to the day of departure on 19 October 2019 for all participants. Participants living in Germany have to organise and pay for their journey to and from Berlin individually. Those living outside Germany will be contacted by the Summit Team, who will book and pay for your journey from your nearest national airport/train or coach station to the Summit location by giving priority to the most eco-friendly connections.

Accommodation and Catering

Participants will be accommodated in a youth hostel in gender-separated dormitories with people of other nationalities. For the whole event, safety and security are top priorities. The Summit Team will supervise the participants during the day and will stay with the group at night. There are no security checks during the night.

Visa

If you require a visa for Germany, please apply for it as soon as possible. The Körber Foundation will cover the cost of your visa. If this applies to you, please contact the Summit Team (eustory@koerber-stiftung.de).

Insurance

The Körber Foundation will book and cover medical travel insurance for all non-German participants. Additionally, we recommend all participants to take out insurances like liability protection, casualty insurance and theft insurance for their luggage individually.

No Legal Right to Participation

Unfortunately, it will not be possible to invite all applicants. There is no legal right to participation. Even after an invitation has been issued, a workshop may have to be cancelled due to illness or a force majeure. As the number of participants is restricted, it is not always possible to offer the workshop of first priority.

Withdrawal from Participation

Pedagogical projects like the EUSTORY Summit are expensive and costs arise even when a participant withdraws. Therefore, the following rule applies: After having received an invitation to the Summit, the candidate can reject to participate within one week. In case the withdrawal is announced at a later stage, the organisers will try to find a replacement. If nobody can be found, the organisers reserve the right to charge a withdrawal fee (25€ per Summit day). This does not refer to cases of illness confirmed by a doctor’s certificate.

Rules and Regulations During the Summit

Due to reasons of liability and with respect to minors, smoking and the consuming of alcohol are prohibited during the entire Summit. For reasons of liability and responsibility of the organisers, minors are only allowed to split from the main group in units of at least three people after consulting with the Summit Team and if the Declaration of Consent allows it. Participants who disturb or boycott the programme or disregard the given instructions may be excluded from the Summit and may be charged with extra costs.
