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.

Bringing in participants from across the fur value chain the educational programme focuses on entrepreneurship, craftsmanship, design, business, ethics and communication.

"Last year's Fur Summer School was a major success, and we consider it an important part of our Youth Initiative programme.
