If any of our younger readers are interested in learning about liberty, why not apply for a place at Freedom Week?. I can personally recommend it, having attended the first Freedom Week back in 2006 and enjoyed it immensely. Basically it is a week-long residential seminar course in Cambridge for students who want to learn more about free market and libertarian ideas. Every day you hear talks from top classical liberal thinkers (last year, speakers included Professor Stephen Davies, Dr Mark Pennington, Professor Chandran Kukathas, and our own Dr Madsen Pirie), and get to discuss fascinating, challenging ideas with like-minded people. There are plenty of fun activities to get involved with too – like dinners, barbeques, punting, and nights out in Cambridge – and best of all, it's all free. What's not to like?
FREEDOM WEEK 2010 will take place from 12 to 16 July 2010, at Sidney Sussex College, Cambrige. The deadline for applications is 15 May, but the earlier you apply, the more chance you have of being accepted.
To apply, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, putting "Application [your name]" in the subject box.
- your CV (2 pages maximum);
- a statement as to why you would like to participate in the seminar (150 words or less)
- a statement (150 words or less) about your career interests;
- other supporting evidence as to why you would be suitable to be included in the programme (must be concise!)
