The summer school this year offers the opportunity to hear our guest speaker, Steve Sarowitz from the USA, participate in interesting workshops and perhaps see the world from a new perspective. As always, there will be plenty of time to relax and have fun with family and friends. There is room for meaningful conversations in the “conversation corner, music and song, prayer, soccer and much more!

This year’s keynote speaker
The main speaker of the summer school 2024 is Steve Sarowitz from the USA. He will speak on the topic “Why we need a spiritual revolution – the Bahá’í perspective.” Below you can read a little about Steve.

Steve started the Wayfarer Foundation in 2021 as a Bahá’í-inspired organization with the mission to “advance humankind spiritually towards a future peaceful world civilization”. He actively works for world peace through the elimination of racism, promoting gender equality, and initiatives for educational equity. His philanthropy supports various causes related to education, healthcare, and poverty reduction.

He co-produced the film ‘Abdu’l-Baha in France’ through his media production company, Spring Green Films and produced the film “The Gate” about the life of the Báb. He is also the executive producer of the award-winning documentary, “Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise”.

Some talks he has given can be found on YouTube. Below is a link to a short interview with him entitled, “Why the World Needs Faith and Business Together”.

Children and junior youth
We are preparing programs for children, junior youth. More information will come, but there will certainly be an opportunity to engage the children in teaching and activities such as music and singing, bread baked on a bonfire, sports etc. The age groups will be distributed according to who registers.

Sports and Fun!
At the school, there will also be plenty of opportunities to meet new people, do sports and gain experience. Use of the gym, green areas and fitness room is included in the price. The beach is 3 km away (5 minutes by car).
