Dear AEGEE members,
Wishing you a happy New Year, we are presenting you an open call for hosting the 4th edition of Europe on Track!
If you haven’t heard about us yet, here is a short description:
Europe on Track (EoT) is a youth-led project in which 6 ambassadors in 2 teams cross Europe (along 2 different routes) with InterRail passes for one month to inform and interview young people about their visions of a future Europe in relation to different topics.
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.
How can you and your local get involved?
If you are interested in being one of the Ambassadors, check the call here!
Your local can apply to be a hosting antenna, which would involve organising a local event where the ambassadors can present the project to a wider audience.
Imagine a one day AEGEE event with a group of 20-30 people (or more!), some sessions and discussions, interactive games, and an event that is also open to non-AEGEEans in your city. The EoT project team will fully support the locals and provide a toolkit on how to organise your perfect EoT event.
This year’s topic for Europe on Track will be Civic Education.
The hosting local is required to:
Support the ambassadors by providing them with accommodation and meals for one or two nights
Arrange a place/room for the presentation/discussions and print materials
Organise a local event/activity* – in cooperation with the EoT Coordination Team
The more you manage to organise the better!
Signature collection for the ECI
Ambassadors delivering civic education classes in high schools
Visit another NGO or local media
Panel discussion with stakeholders/externals (teachers, politicians…)
Any other interesting idea that you might come up with!
Unfortunately, as things stand right now, there will be no economic support for the locals but we have and are working really hard on fundraising, should we be successful we will communicate that to the chosen locals.
To apply please send the motivation letter of your antenna to firstname.lastname@example.org until the 10th of February.
