What is the themed session about?

“Environmental and climate crisis” – this year’s Thematic Week topic – will weave through our courses, team activities, and the spirit of the whole week. Our programming will give students the freedom to take initiative and develop their own ideas and shape them into actions. “Climate Discover” is here for all newcomers and experienced Discover attendees alike, and is sure to be the best week of your summer, with a twist!

“Climate Discover” is rooted in the belief that we can no longer live in the Anthropocene without acknowledging and understanding the way the crisis touches all aspects of our lives, including our ways of knowing and learning. Our courses will explore how each topic intersects with the environmental and climate crises, and seek to find common ground between various disciplines, academic and practical alike.

The themed session will be held in in Czech and Slovak languages.

What is the accommodation at Discover?

The international session takes place in Svatý Jan pod Skalou close to Prague. Accommodation is provided in a former benedictin monastery, now serving as a pedagogical college. Thanks to its thick stone walls, the monastery offers a pleasant shelter from the summer heat. It is always only a few steps from your room to the class room or the cantine. You will be housed in shared rooms (boys and girls room separately) with bathrooms on every floor.

Just outside of the main building is a large garden belonging to the monastery. It is an ideal spot for relaxation, playing games, or trying out slackline. The grounds are shielded by the St Jan Rock, which offers a magnificent view of the surroundings. There is no wifi connection, but phone reception is available.
