The Erasmus+ Combined Intensive Programme “Strengthening the Legal Understanding of the EU Institutions and their Functioning” concluded on March 8th, and left a lasting impact on all participants. Seven dedicated KSU Law students embarked on this educational journey.

Beginning with remote lectures led by seasoned EU lecturers and the esteemed President of the Court of Justice of the European Union, Koen Lenaerts, the programme provided a robust foundation in EU law. After conquering remote sessions and passing a rigorous test, our KSU students journeyed to Belgium to join fellow participants.

A highlight for many was the simulated European Parliament debate and vote at Leuven City Hall, leaving an indelible mark on their understanding of EU governance.

The world is coping with a wide range of challenges such as migration, cyber-attacks, organised crime, and other new challenges, including a recent virus-led crisis. In the past years these challenges have also become security issues of importance to many European countries. Security challenges are important for any organisation or company, so experienced and well-trained security specialists are vital for development of any company.

At the moment, it is clear that European countries deal with these challenges in different ways. There are no unified standards and approaches as to how specialists should deal with these kind of challenges. There is a need for professional, well-trained specialists who can realise sound security risk management at various levels and in different kind of organisations.

During the intensive programme students will have the opportunity to learn about security risk management, develop skills, and gain knowledge about planning and implementing security management in various organisations. They will also learn about identifying and managing security risks. Of course, security education also requires practical knowledge and cooperation, so the course will include practical activities such as team challenges and exercises, and other activities that can be crucial factors in real situations.

On October 4th, Dr. Louise Tidmand, Associate Professor at the University College of Copenhagen, will visit Kazimieras Simonavicius University and give an open lecture ”Life Skills and Life-do-ability in the 21st century – the what, why and how?”

The lecture will introduce the construct Life – do – ability and link it to the life skills, that the 21st century calls for. What are these life skills and how are they different from earlier? What does it mean to be life-do-able and how may higher education and students support each other in developing life skills and life-do-ability?

Louise Tidmand is a Danish “pracademic” – a practitioner and an academic. Her PhD research focuses on developing life coping skills, resilience, and wellbeing in adolescents through a whole school approach intervention. Louise is a teacher and educational psychologist, and she has devoted the past ten years to transform research into tangible educational materials for teachers, parents and students to work with in a school or home setting. Her books and games have received recommendations from the Danish National Board of Health and the Danish Board of Social Services.

Louise is passionate about connecting research to everyday lives through strength-based methods and approaches that will enable schools to develop Positive Education school cultures. Through her business The Strength Academy, she educates and trains professionals, who work with children and young adults, in social-emotional learning, strengths, wellbeing and life coping skills. As part of her PhD Louise was enrolled at the Centre for Positive Psychology at the University of Melbourne, an experience that added an international perspective to her research. It also gave her the opportunity to visit pioneer Positive Education Schools around Australia, speak to teachers, school managements and world leading researchers about the core of Positive Education, future directions of positive psychology, and wellbeing literacy.

This week, our KSU representatives had an incredible meeting with our partners from the Eastern European University of Applied Sciences in Bialystok, Poland.

The heart of the discussion was the impressive project of our Polish colleagues on the transforming of the university landscape and study methods to cater perfectly to the needs of differently-abled students.
In this engaging session, we also dove into the evolving societal perspectives on disability, sharing not just our successes, but also the hurdles we’re taking on to ensure that every student enjoys accessible and supportive study environments. We gained valuable insights into how various countries shape the legal and practical aspects of integrating students with disabilities.

The meeting didn’t just solidify our partnership – it ignited a burst of new ideas and opportunities that’ll guide our future collaborations.Stay tuned for more updates as we continue working together for an inclusive and brighter educational landscape.
