BIBS Summer School – Reviving the International Trade Fair in Brno

The city of Brno, Czech republic, was (and still is) a home of International Trade Fairs, which, after the WW II, represented an important business gate through the closed political “Iron Courtain“, dividing the Western and Eastern Europe.  The market, as a place reserved for a mutual exchange of goods, is important even today. As always, the merchants from a  distant places merged with the local folks and the ideas, frequently usefull, cross-bred.  Since the dominant role of industry is slowly being taken over by the educational and reseach institutions, our civilization´s  future is more and more dependent upon such free cross-cultural exchange of ideas. Our ability to reach consensus  on some common, long range vision grows out of our ability to listen, to consider and to question some new views. These skills are of strategic importance.  The aim is no longer to get richer in a material way, but to fulfill our human needs of communication, emotional enrichment and enquiry. To support and to obtain this all  is the purpose of our  meeting during the summer school, the open market place of ideas, different cultures, we offer to take a part in.
