International school on integrity: training tomorrow’s leaders

Young anti-corruption activists from around the world will congregate soon in Lithuania’s capital Vilnius to take part in the fifth Transparency International School on Integrity. Since 2010, the school has welcomed more than 350 students, graduates and young professionals from over 60 countries.

Students engage in intensive seminars and trainings with leading anti-corruption and accountability professionals. By linking theory to practice and emphasising peer-to-peer learning, these young leaders acquire the necessary skills to stand against corruption in their countries.

An eye-opening learning experience

Students not only learn about the causes of corruption but also how societies can become more transparent and accountable.

“With the variety of workshops and activities available, we were provided with different tools and knowledge on how to strengthen and empower our initiatives and campaigns against corruption,” explains former student Hend Abo Al Saud from Egypt who described the experience as “eye-opening and revelatory.”

Challenging views at every turn

“If anyone left that week without being inspired to help rid the world of corruption, I would be incredibly surprised,” says former student Ben Wheatland from the UK.

“I had my views challenged at every turn, and never have I been so happy to let them be.”

Applications for 2014 now open

In July 2014, we will once again welcome some 140 future leaders from more than 60 countries for the enriching seven-day School on Integrity.

The application deadline is 1 May 2014 for non-EU students and 14 May 2014 for EU students. A limited number of scholarships are also available for prospective students.
