They also meet politicians, entrepreneurs, disabled people, monks, dying people, artists, the awardee of the Martin Buber-Plague.

"Voice" of a student
When I hear the word Euriade feelings and expressions like unity, freedom, dialogue, conversations, trust and many more are deeply felt by my heart. What a week it has been – meeting new people, visiting the most beautiful places and most important of all- learning and observing our world and the people all over the world. No money can buy this knowledge…
