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.

The event will be held here in Bratislava from Friday 25th to the 27th of November. You are very welcome to join us a day earlier since we will be having fun and discussing big ideas in our capital.
The agenda includes workshops and presentations and discussions about:
- Starting and running a national EA community
- Thinking about and creating a strategy for your group from a regional perspective
- Presentations of successful EA communities
- Opportunities and challenges of community building in Eastern European countries.
- and more
There will be plenty of time to connect, discuss and inspire each other. You are welcome to suggest activities and discussion topics in your application.
The selection will be made based on your background, interests, and motivations.
