    2. Do not put yourself at any kind of risk.
    3. Do not show off. Always keep low profile.
    4. Follow instructions of lecturers.
    5. Bear in your mind the Safety and Security Rule – following rules is strength, not weakness.

    • Outdoor equipment: Bring your own hiking boots, raincoat and flashlight. Other necessary equipment is provided. High heels not recommended…
    • Admission & pocket money: The admission of EUR 500 covers boarding & lodging, transport, lecturing and fees. Your pocket money should therefore cover your extra expenses only (souvenirs, beer etc.). Please bear in mind that extra food is provided for health reasons only.
