Cambridge Baltic Conference 2014 to focus on education

Some of the finest minds in the Baltic are to gather in Cambridge on 10/11 October to discuss education, which is the theme of this year’s Cambridge Baltic Conference.

After a successful one day event in 2013, which focused on the Baltic/EU relationship, the event is now spread over two days, the first being given over to workshops which will be attended by students from Cambridge University.

The conference proper will begin on Saturday with a keynote address from Dr Roberts Ķīlis, former Latvian Minister of Education and Science, on “Skills versus Knowledge in Secondary Education”.

Other distinguished guests include Sir Paul Judge (benefactor of the Judge Business School), Maive Rute, former CEO of KredEx in Estonia and now a Resource Director at the European Commission, and Tõnu Pekk, Chairman of the Board of Young Scholar Grant.

The patrons include all three serving British Ambassadors in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

  1. Dear friends
    Situation at the East of Ukraine is getting more and more complicated. Number of refugees from Donetsk and Lugansk regions searching for shelter in other regions is increasing. These people left their flats, cars, clothes and money and escaped to other regions. The government of Ukraine doesn’t do much to help them. Most of support is provided by NGOs and charity organizations.
    Our organization “Lugansk Regional Charitable Foundation “Teenager” and our partners from Vinniky city (Lviv region) made a refugee camp. 200 refugees from Mariupol, Lugansk and Donetsk live in this camp. We provide them free place to live and food. Most of them are children and women. We also provide help to refugees in other cities of Lviv region. But our resources are getting more and more limited.
    We are financing food and shelter for refugees but our money will soon be over.
    In attached document you can find project and budget for emergency financing.
    Please consider emergency financing of this project. Its total budget is 10 000 Euro. But even 10 Euro would be great help for us.
    Best regards
