‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s legacy —
hundred years of Formative Age

The Summer School this year is again orgnazied as a virtual event due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Nonetheless we are expecting it to be an inspiring event where, in addition to learning and study, it is possible to meet friends, to get to know new people and to enjoy good company!

Register to the school here

Participating in the programme

The programme frame below is also your 'entrance ticket' to all the sessions of the Summer School. By clicking your mouse on each programme you will get to the virtual meeting for that particular session. Below there is also a PDF version which you can download to your computer or your mobile device; this version, too, has links on which you can click to get to participate in the programme you desire.

Language

Next to each program there is a language code in blue. E.g. if it says "EN (FI)", it means that that program is in ENglish and there is FInnish translation for it. If there is nothing in the paranthesis, then the programme is only in one language without translation (only in the case of study workshops).

Zoom app

We will be using Zoom interface for the event. We strongly recommend the use of a computer or tablet, since a larger screen gives a far better participation experience; however, cellphones can also be used for this purpose. In order to participate in the Summer School, you need a small Zoom app on your computer or your tablet or your cellphone. For a Windows computer, it can be found here: https://zoom.us/client/latest/ZoomInstaller.exe; for other operating systems, here: https://zoom.us/download#client_4meeting; for tablet or cellphone you can get the app from the app-store of your device (Android or iPhone).

In case of problems, please call Summer School Committee's representative Partow Izadi, tel. +358 40 5883758
