European Summer Camp 2018

This is an opportunity for leading members from multiple industries to meet once a year and connect with their younger peers to discuss about big subjects.  

This year the Summer Camp is on the Migration of ideas - Diaspora and will be held in Marseille, France between 6 - 10 Oct 2018. 

The Summer Camp is an invaluable networking and development event for everyone from Europe and beyond.


Summer Camp was born in 1999 from a simple idea - connect people who wanted space to reflect on the issues of our time.  Summer Camp has welcomed leaders from across the world to places of real historical significance, which stimulate learning from the past, but also embody the future.  We are now entering a new phase. The focus is on young leaders and the world we want to live in. Young here does not mean a restriction in age.  It is about spirit, energy and a commitment to creating the future.

In 2016 we all met in Gdańsk, Poland where we met Lech Wałęsa in the dockyards where the Solidarity movement started in September 1980 leading to a revolution that led to the fall of communism.

Last year we met in Timișoara, Romania. We wanted to discuss the relationship between Leaders and Followers in the wake of rising Populism. In December 1989, Timișoara witnessed a series of mass street protests in what was to become the Romanian Revolution. On 20 December, three days after bloodshed began there, Timișoara was declared the first city free of Communism in Romania at the site of the populist revolt. We were welcomed by Simona Neumann, Executive Director of “Timișoara – European Capital of Culture” to talk us through stakeholder engagement and supporting community leaders in the city cooperating on Timisoara’s shining light concept for 2021. 

Growing the knowledge base for young leaders, learning from peers and experts is what the Good Governance Institute has always been about.
