Source: 2011 Summer of Change
The past decade has seen a remarkable growth and revitalization of Jewish life across Europe. New initiatives are emerging in countries all over the continent, and people are connecting and reconnecting to Jewish life – culturally and spiritually. Paideia, ROI Community and JHub have played an integral part in these developments and work together towards a shared vision of a vital and vibrant Jewish culture in Europe. Join them in Uppsala this summer on August 2-16, 2011, for a string of events supporting, celebrating and discussing the new Jewish Europe.
The Summer of Change consists of four interwoven components:
The Project-Incubator is a two-week program for individuals who develop their ideas from concept to implementation, with individual tutoring, lectures, networking and peer support. It will take place in Stockholm and Uppsala and includes the JPropel event.
JPropel, a four-day program gathering of leaders and activists from across Europe who will meet, learn and create together. Staff in the European gathering and the Project-Incubator will be drawn from the major organizations working with Jewish social innovation in Europe and worldwide.
The Professional Symposium will gather the staff present from leading organizations working with social entrepreneurship in the Jewish sphere, to expand cooperative efforts between innovation-enablers and reflect on methodologies for the stimulation of entrepreneurship in Europe.
Paideia Decennial Conference: Jewish Perspectives on Transformations in Contemporary Europe will gather the foremost thinkers, professionals and innovators to reflect on change in Europe through the lens of Jewish thought, including the participants from all the above events.
Additional information on the various events, and organizers, can be found on the Summer of Change website.
