Calling all students from Northern Ireland

Go and have some travel experiences before your tuition fees rocket!

Inge Sodeland from the International Student Festival in Trondheim, Norway, is inviting Northern Irish students to take part in the event's dialogue seminars.  ISFiT is the largest festival of its type in the world and it takes place between 11-20 February next year.

The Dialogue Groups seek to gather students from different sides of conflicts to meet on equal grounds in a neutral environment. In February 2011 we invite students from the conflict areas of Armenia/Azerbaijan, Rwanda/Burundi and Northern Ireland for a dialogue seminar in Norway. Through different communications exercises, role-play and social activities the participants and the facilitators will explore the consequences of the conflict and the opportunities for the future. Dialogue, leadership and project development will be important topics throughout the seminar. In total 24 participants - four representatives from each side of the three different conflict areas, will spend 20 days in Norway working with dialogue, sharing different experiences, and having lots of fun:)

The closing date for application is 15 October, so time is of the essence.  There's an application form here.
