For the first time the Children University Foundation Friends Breakfast will be held in Gdańsk. On 24 October, universities’ authorities, business patrons and school representatives will meet in the University of Gdańsk Library to discuss the key competences necessary to improve the future of students and means to support schools in the process of teaching those competences.
The Children University comes up with solutions for children to develop their passions, talents and natural curiosity, that allow them to understand the world better and know how to operate in it. Such solutions have been in place for 12 years under the Children University and for 6 years they have been present in the polish primary schools as the Children University in the Classroom.
The goal of the Children University Foundation Breakfasts is binding backgrounds together and creating space for discussion on education needs and current competences and requirements that children face. This year such meetings happen in Warsaw, Cracow, Wroclaw and Poznan. For the first time the Children University Foundation comes to Gdańsk, where it organizes Foundation Friends Breakfast in cooperation with the University of Gdańsk. Previous year’s meetings report is available online.
Guests invited to the Children University Foundation Friends Breakfast:
Rectors of the Higher Education Institutions
Headmasters of schools
Media and journalists
The Children University
Since 2007, the Children University Foundation stimulates children’s curiosity and disseminates up-to-date education methods, going beyond the traditional teaching. The foundation works in two main areas: it organizes Saturday classes with scientists in 5 Polish cities (The Children University) and propagates original lesson plans at schools (Children University in the Classroom). Starting next academic year it will be inviting children to the Universities in Tricity!
