Focusing on entrepreneurship, craftsmanship, innovation, design, business, ethics and communication the annual Fur Summer School kicks off in August. As a part of Fur Europe's Youth Initiative the Fur Summer School promotes the next generation of professionals and a continued vibrant fur community.

Fur Europe has opened for calls for the annual Fur Summer School. The Fur Summer School is a part of Fur Europe’s Youth Initiative programme and is organised in cooperation with the Hellenic Fur Federation. Taking place in historical Greek fur area of Kastoria and Siatista with more than 1,400 years as active fur communities 23 August to 1 September, the Fur Summer School promotes youth participation and involvement in the fur sector.

Target group

A group of 25 young people interested in fur is anticipated with participants preferably (but not exclusively) of age 20-30 years coming from a European country. This is not solely a design course; we aim at reaching balance of participants in terms of their professional orientation (business, design, communication, farming, research…)

General requirements

Applicants must be interested in fur, curious to learn about its infinite possibilities, willing to actively contribute with their ideas to shape the concept of a youth programme. Participants must be fluent in English and preferably come from a European country in the scope of Fur Europe’s activities.
