WHAT ABOUT A SUMMER SCHOOL OF GEOPOLITICS IN TUSCANY?

The ACT is honoured to host a special program about Geopolitics for students that provides a comprehensive experience of lectures about geopolitics, and in particular about the increasing role of borders and identity in shaping international relations today.
After seven years of summer schools with students from all over the world, we know very well the importance of the environment for focusing on study. The ACT International Course in Geopolitics provides the perfect place where to focus and apply to study, a typical Tuscan farmhouse completely renovated, but also gives the students an environment rich in awesome landscapes, nature, history, and culture to refresh their minds after the hard learning work.
We provide the exciting opportunity to learn from internationally renowned teachers, during a full immersion week, alternating teaching activities and the discovery of the fascinating Tuscan territory.
In addition to the learning experience, participants will be able to enjoy a wide range of cultural sites, historic monuments, and natural sites of Tuscany, disclosed by expert archaeologists and local guides.
The School is taking place from September 2 to 8, 2019 at Catabbiaccio, 58055 Semproniano (GR)
