Energy Community Summer School is a program initiated by the Energy Community Secretariat in 2015 to promote the development of participant's competencies in topics related to energy. Summer School has a dedicated, multi-disciplinary program and provides a platform to exchange and contribute to shaping the future of all energy sectors. It targets highly motivated postgraduate students (masters or PhD), researchers from all energy-related disciplines, and young professionals. Energy Community Secretariat and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Dialogue Southeast Europe are partnering again in 2022 to provide a unique addition to the Summer School program, focusing on energy journalism.
FES SOE recognizes the challenges for energy transition across the region and is devoted to advancing a socio-ecological transformation. We have committed to several activities that will aid this holistic approach to the energy transition, one of them being the promotion of energy journalism. Acknowledging the role of energy journalism in unveiling facts and processes related to the energy transition and creating positive narratives that build social acceptance for the transition, we continue our support to the training of energy journalists in the region.
We invite all journalists up to the age of thirty-five (35) from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia, and Turkey to apply for the second generation of Energy Summer School 2022, which will take place in Sarajevo from 20th to 27th of August 2022. Experience in energy journalism is not a must, but we do count on avid interest for the topics that energy journalism covers and willingness to learn more. Apart from the lectures given to all Summer School participants, the energy journalism training within this year's program will cover a full-day specialized training for the selected journalists. For participants selected through this open call, all accommodation and travelling costs will be covered, including travelling costs incurring from requirements to travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina under COVID-19 regulations. In addition to covering all related costs, FES SOE will provide assistance to those participants who are required to obtain visas to travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina.
To apply, please submit:
 Applications for the Energy Community Summer School differ from the applications to the Energy journalism program implemented in cooperation with FES SOE. For information on the applications, please take a look at Energy Community Secretariat's website.
 Disclaimer: Event realization will depend on the circumstances of the global health situation, and possible changes on the level of national and EU directives, as dictated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
