Eastern Europe Community Building Retreat will bring together ambitious community builders and strategic thinkers to learn, connect and collaborate to build communities that will work on solving the world’s most pressing problems. The goal of the event is to improve community-building coordination across Eastern European countries, to think about strategy from the socio-economic perspective of these countries, and to help kick-start EA communities in this region. We´re excited to welcome active community builders, who are running national, regional, or university groups, people interested in starting an EA community in Eastern European countries, and those who are enthusiastic about coordinating Eastern Europe community-building efforts.

Cool to see this is happening - when is the deadline for people to apply?

Hi Brian, thanks for asking. We do have a place for  20 to 40 people.  We don't have an official deadline, but we could say the end of October. Always best to apply early.

Update: The event will be held in Bratislava from Thursday 24th to the 27th of November.

What's the reason for this change in schedule. 

there was some uncertainty about the location and we have finally made a decision and booked the place
