The result of the journalistic workshops will be the final publication and the debate/panel discussion in Kaliningrad – fully prepared by the participants with the support of experts. The working language of the Solidarity Academy is English. One of the main goals of the project is to create a programme of Solidarity Academy Graduates which will allow the participants to maintain contact and engage together in other projects.
The Solidarity Academy is open to international young journalists and writers.
