About ESC 17

The Polish Skeptics’ Club in cooperation with the Czech Skeptics’ Club Sisyfos is holding the 17th biannual European Skeptics Congress 2017 in Wroclaw, Poland, September 22nd – 24th, under the auspices of ECSO European Council for Skeptical Organisations.

In 2017, as we acknowledge the 120th anniversary of André-Jacques Garnerin first parachute jump, it is the time for the skeptic community to take a leap of faith out of the comfort of academic discussion into interaction with the public.
