Thoughts on EFA

EFA was a beautiful experience, and it was a privilege to be there as part of Senza Confini.

The mix of academic and cultural exploration and social activities was incredible, and enabled me to grow on many different levels.

The spirit of Alpbach and CASC totally caught me! I really believe that crossing borders – not only geographically, but also hierarchically and on an interdisciplinary level is the most important pathway to a peaceful future.

Do you envision yourself in Alpbach next August? Apply now for a scholarship!
