Since 2006 PHZ has been hosting volunteers from all over Europe within a EU programme called European Voluntary Service. For over 20 years, volunteers not only from Slovakia have been coming to Sekier to try out a life closer to nature, however prior to the involvement in the EU programme it had been difficult to provide a financial base to cover their living costs and to develop the Sekier farm.
The Socrates Institute came into being with the aim to create conditions for the development of young people who are not afraid to work on themselves, be responsible for their decisions and follow their visions. The project’s initiators believe that society may get significantly influenced by a single person, given that he or she has enough knowledge, courage, diligence and charisma. The focus group are university students from Slovakia. It is open to students from any field, adressing future scientists, lawyers, economists, medicians, journalists and artists.
