Creating better relations by seeking mutual understanding: Harmony in diversity

Summer course 7-17 August 2018 - Lillehammer, Norway

NEWDAY is a cross-cultural dialogue academy founded to provide a platform for the development of closer and better relations among scholars and university students from East Asia and the Nordic region of Europe. NEWDAY offers an inter-disciplinary training program addressing current global challenges in a unique social setting.

Dialogue about what among whom?
The pace of change has never been faster. Where we are headed is not at all clear. That is a question to be debated, and dialogue is needed. The NEWDAY project maintains that humane leadership is needed, and we believe that devoted and concerned students of today are the prospective leaders of tomorrow.

In an effort of contributing our part to this important task, we are calling concerned students from East Asia and the Nordic countries to Lillehammer, a small but Olympic town in Norway. The summer course takes place at Nansen Academy, a distinctive People’s High School, where you will spend ten days together with outstanding scholars, media people and political leaders.

The contemporary world needs open minds and innovative thinking. We believe that respectful cross-cultural dialogue is a necessary tool in order to create international understanding with appreciation of differences.

The NEWDAY motto is Creating better relations by seeking mutual understanding: Harmony in diversity. You are invited to join us. Welcome!
