Call for Ambassadors: Europe on Track 2017 – Opportunity to travel across Europe!
Deadline: February 3, 2017
Applications are now open for Europe on Track 2017. EGEE, one of the biggest student organizations in Europe, is looking for 6 young, enthusiastic and proactive people who will hit the road to go on a one-month adventure across Europe to put Civic Education on the political agenda. This will be done through discussions and workshops in order to address young people’s realities, aspirations and visions for the future of Europe.
This trip will be in partnership with Interrail and the lucky guys will get a free month-long 1st class Interrail pass (worth approx. 800€) whilst following a predetermined route (but you´d need some pocket money!). The trip (with training) will take place from the 17th of April 2017 (at a big conference in Budapest) until the 23rd of May (in Enschede at Spring Agora Enschede (one of the largest youth gatherings in Europe))
If talking to people, travelling, learning, adventures, civic education and being creative appeal to you or you know anyone then apply!
Europe on Track is a youth-led project in which 6 ambassadors in 2 teams cross Europe with InterRail passes for one month to inform and interview young people about their visions of a future Europe in relation to this year’s topic: Civic Education. At each stop, the ambassadors organize and participate in local events, generating content and creating spaces for dialogue and discussion. The journey can be followed on social media via blogs, videos and photos. At the end of the trip, a documentary and quantitative and qualitative data analysis will be created as a recap.
- You will travel to circa 10 cities in one month with Interrail passes provided by AEGEE and EoT
- You will facilitate and moderate workshops and discussions at the different stops (including conferences) on Civic Education
