Description

Transparency International School on Integrity is an annual state-of-the-art anti-corruption and accountability training for future leaders. The upcoming School will take place during 8-14 July, 2019 in Vilnius, Lithuania. The School exposes its participants to the latest developments in the field of anti-corruption and accountability and offers real opportunities to try and implement their ideas in practice.

Following a rigorous selection process, students spend 7 highly intensive days learning from leading anti-corruption and accountability professionals. Transparency School seeks to create a peer-to-peer learning and integrity-building environment that links theory with practice and helps young leaders to acquire skills to better convey the message of anti-corruption.

School lectures, seminars, trainings and field trips provide the School participants with a unique blend of international and local knowledge, while also challenging students to approach the subject from a new perspective and offer novel, previously untested solutions. Since 2010, Transparency School has welcomed more than 1000 youth leaders from about 120 countries worldwide.

The lectures are held at the Mykolas Romeris University student campus. 

Usually all the participants are accommodated at the university hostel facilities and are asked to share a room with another participant of the same gender. However, do not hesitate to let us know if you have particular needs or certain preferences. TI School team will do their best to meet your needs and make sure nothing spoils your stay in Vilnius.
