ATTENTION: Please note date changes!

Students will arrive in Brussels on Thursday 17 March 2016 and will meet the other participants that evening. The workshops will take place during the day on Friday 18 March 2016. They will return home on Saturday 19 March 2016.

The EESC will arrange and pay the accommodation expenses (two nights) of students and their teachers in Brussels. It will also arrange and pay travel expenses for the international airplane/train connection from their home country to Brussels (including connecting flights/long distance connecting trains if needed). Travel will be by air or train depending on the participants' country of origin. The EESC will pay also transport from/to Brussels station or airport and the hotel. The EESC will not pay any domestic transport in the home country. This means that travel from/to the departure station or airport in the home country will not be reimbursed.

The EESC travel agency will contact the accompanying teachers directly to suggest flight/train itineraries. We ask teachers to respond quickly to the travel agency. Participants should make sure they arrive at the station/airport well in advance of their scheduled departure time. If they miss their train or flight for any reason other than force majeure, the EESC will not grant any refund and/or compensation and will not cover the costs of purchasing new tickets, rerouting existent tickets, paying for accommodation or subsistence costs.
