This week, from the 2nd to the 7th of August, 110 youth leaders from some 60 countries around the world will participate in the 12th edition of Transparency International School on Integrity. The largest event of its kind in the world, the School has gathered more than 1300 participants throughout the last eleven years. This year the School is held virtually.
During the six-day-long School, young people will attend intensive anti-corruption training in which they will learn more about the causes and different faces of corruption. Together with lecturers, they will discuss ways how to seek greater transparency and how to curb corruption in their daily lives. The School focuses on the newest anti-corruption trends and creative ways to help anti-corruption champions create change in their respective communities.
The participants will spend the week learning from well-established anti-corruption and transparency experts from Brazil, Czechia, Colombia, Germany, Indonesia, Ireland, Lithuania, Mexico, Paraguay, Romania, Switzerland, Taiwan, the Republic of South Africa, the UK, Ukraine, the US and Zambia.
The School is organized by Transparency International Lithuania in cooperation with Mykolas Romeris University, Lithuania.
This year several partners contributed to the organization of the School: United States Department of Commerce, Taiwan Foundation for Democracy, World Youth Movement for Democracy (WYMD), Swedish International Liberal Centre (SILC).
