How much


generosityWith its potential to reclaim the power of individuals, organisations and communities, such a training is needed now more than ever before. At the same time, it happens at a time when the economic conditions are very challenging in this part of Europe.

Therefore we offer several options that respond to a variety of circumstances (see below). We also invite you to offer more (if you can & want), or talk to us if economy is a major barrier to your participation.

The participation fee includes:

  • training participation fee,
  • accommodation in hotel or annex (Planica Olympic Sports Center) on full-board basis (first meal: lunch on 23 May; last meal: lunch on 25 May, 2014); mainly in triple (or in a few cases double) rooms,
  • refreshments during coffee breaks,
  • participant handbook (in electronic form) – in English,
  • summary of key methods in Slovenian (in electronic form).

We offer the following participation fees:

  • 450 EUR – corporate fee (for-profit organisations, including ‘s. p.’)
  • 300 EUR – individuals & not-for-profit organisations (NGO’s, public sector)
  • 200 EUR – reduced fee: a limited number (20) of reduced fees were available to Slovenian participants thanks to a Grundtvig Lifelong Learning Grant (Enhancing Systemic Transformation – Sustainable Learning in Times of Chaos & Crisis) for those individuals, students, unemployed or NGO employees who cannot afford to pay a full fee. The deadline for applications was 15 March.

If you are able and willing to pay more than what has been requested  (300 or 450 EUR), than please indicate so in the registration form. Your gift will be used to cover the costs of another participant who otherwise would not be able to join.

A limited number of single rooms are available at an extra charge of 50 EUR. Please indicate in the registration form (under ‘Comments’ if you request a single room.

If you don’t need the accommodation in the hotel – or prefer to stay somewhere else –  then 60 EUR will be deducted from the participation fee (we still count on you sharing lunch with us as part of the training!). For more information, see the Venue section on this website. Please indicate this under the ‘Comments’ in the registration form; thank you!

In short: talk to us if you have any special circumstances, possibilities or ideas!
