Salzburg Global Seminar/Katrin Kerschbaumer


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 in Greece, in partnership with SGS, will offer a limited number of travel grants and/or partial participation fees to early to mid-career level Greek candidates to participate at the Salzburg Global Seminar.

"The Academy of Salzburg on media, migration and global change, provided by far one of the most powerful personal experiences on a scientific and interpersonal level. Clearly, this is an experience that alters the way in which one looks upon the world, bringing one into contact with people that have similar dreams, aspirations and principles. People who envision what a better world may look like, wishing to devote their lives to hard work in a bid to transform their visions into a reality for others."

The Creative Power of the Arts: Reimagining Human and Planetary Flourishing

Three-day hybrid meeting program (online, accompanied by a small regional convening in Salzburg) - November 3-5, 2021

As the world confronts the compounded impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, climate crisis, and structural injustices, societies are bracing for a protracted and complex period of reassessment, reimagination, and restructuring. The culture and arts sector must be at the table and included in decision-making processes as societies seek to eschew a return to “normal” and instead reimagine more creative pathways towards human and planetary flourishing.

Addressed to: interdisciplinary and inter-generational group of approximately 60 creative practitioners, researchers, and policymakers from around the globe.

Year-long hybrid program (online, in-person meeting in Salzburg in October 2022) - November 2021-October 2022
