Since 2010, we have hosted 70 summer schools across Europe, generated over 400 projects and business ideas, and built a strong global network of over 3,000 peers. Every year, we embark on parallel Journeys happening simultaneously in multiple cities across Europe. The Journey offers 4 weeks of experiential learning focused on climate action, systems transformation, and community building.

Our programme includes highly interactive sessions which support our participants in their professional and personal growth. Expert workshops, site visits, peer-to-peer learning activities, networking events, and coaching sessions are always integral parts of the Journey experience.UPDATE: Ross Valory has filed a counter-claim against Neal Schon and Jonathan Cain, rebutting their allegations that he and Steve Smith tried to improperly wrest control of the Journey trademark. The countersuit alleges that a 1985 agreement that gave Cain, Schon and former singer Steve Perry’s band entity, Elmo Partners, control of the mark, was actually terminated in 1994; and that Cain and Schon acknowledged in a 1998 agreement that Journey’s larger corporate entity, Nightmare Productions, was the owner of the mark. Valory also argued that the shareholder and board member meetings he and Smith called earlier this year were not part of an effort to take over the Journey mark, but rather “protect” it after Schon allegedly filed a trademark application for “Neal Schon Journey Through Time.”

On Tuesday, lawyers for Schon and Cain filed a lawsuit in the Superior Court of Contra Costa County, California, alleging that Smith and Valory tried to launch “a coup to assume control of one of the band’s corporate entities, Nightmare Productions, Inc.” The suit claims that Smith and Valory incorrectly believed that controlling Nightmare Productions would allow them to gain control of the Journey mark, thus providing them “windfall payments in the millions of dollars… after their retirement.” Skip Miller, a lawyer for Schon and Cain, tells Rolling Stone: “The contracts are clear on their face. The Journey name is controlled by Neal Schon and Jonathan Cain. And for very good cause, they don’t want to perform with Smith or Valory anymore, they don’t want to have anything to do with them, and that’s their right. They’re going to go on with Journey, continue with the great success of the past and these two guys are going to get replaced. (Source: www.rollingstone.com)
