Salzburg Global Seminar is one of the world's leading international educational centers. The mission of Salzburg Global Seminar is to challenge current and future leaders to solve issues of global concern. Presently, the program framework has three cross-cutting clusters and addresses the underlying questions that hold keys to human progress: imagination, sustainability and justice.
Salzburg Global Seminar is dedicated to promoting the exchange of ideas in a multi-disciplinary and cross-cultural environment. Each year, some 1,000 professionals from more than 100 countries get together at the Seminar's magnificent facility at Schloss Leopoldskron, in Salzburg, Austria to discuss political, social, and cultural issues.
The Fulbright Foundation will offer a limited number of travel grants or participation fees to early to mid-career level Greek candidates to participate at the Salzburg Global Seminar. Selection takes place in agreement with the SGS program organizers.
For 2019, priority will be given to the following sessions:
The CULTURE, ARTS AND SOCIETY Series
What Future for Cultural Heritage? Perceptions, Problematics, and Potential
SALZBURG, MARCH 16 TO 21, 2019
In today’s volatile world, links to the past and to place are becoming more tenuous and contested, and threats to cultural heritage – both tangible and intangible – are extremely socially and politically difficult to counter. It is a critical moment to ask what cultural heritage actually means to different people and regions, especially in the digital era, and why it is more important than ever to preserve, enhance and share cultural heritage through all available means.
Salzburg Seminar American Studies Association (SSASA)
The Changing Role of the Media in American Life and Culture: Emerging Trends
SALZBURG, SEPTEMBER 20 TO 24, 2019
The USA has never had so many sources with which to inform itself and the world. But while the options of how to consume news are broadening, consumers’ views are narrowing. The rise of 24-hour TV news channels, hyper-partisan advertising and social media is widening cultural, political and social divides in the United States.
The EDUCATION FOR TOMORROW'S WORLD Series
Education and Workforce Opportunities for Refugees and Migrants
SALZBURG, DECEMBER 8 TO 13, 2019
Building on recent Education for Tomorrow’s World programs on language policy and social and emotional learning, this program will bring together experts, policymakers and practitioners from a wide range of organizations, sectors and countries to develop policy and financing solutions that can create better education outcomes and life chances for both refugees and displaced people and their host communities.
