Europahaus Burgenland - Akademie Pannonien
The Europahaus Burgenland is an educational and meeting place in Burgenland, Austria. It sees itself as a studio for cosmopolitan theory, practice and poetry. Its facilities and activities include a cosmopolitan library; a cosmopolitan garden; the organization of international conferences; a research into the life's work and political wisdom of the Second UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjöld (1905-1961); Measures on European and development policy information, education and advice; the publication of a magazine WELT (GE) WISSEN as well as the "Polis Pannonia", an imagined political region that summarizes Burgenland and the neighboring western Hungarian region. The sponsor is an association with 120 members (2017), most activities are financed from public funds, partly from EU programs.
The Europahaus Burgenland was founded as the Europahaus Eisenstadt in September 1966. The initiative came from the European political commitment of the President of the Austrian Young Workers' Movement, Bruno Buchwieser junior, who was guided by the Europahaus Marienberg, the headquarters of the Europahaus. In 1997, the name was changed to Europahaus Burgenland, combined with a change in the statutes, which ended the representation of the Burgenland state policy in the bodies of the Europahaus. The Europahaus Burgenland strives for a culture of dissidence in a deliberate distance from the Burgenland state policy and has been working since 2015 to leave Burgenland's state policy, which is supported and designed by an international advisory board.See more
