Open Call – Hosting Locals

Dear Network,

Have you already heard about the Your Vision for EUrope project? This project is initiated by AEGEE-Europe to facilitate discussion on European topics and to make the voices of young people heard. You can read more about the aims and objectives here.

Part of our goals is to organize three thematic conferences on topics that young Europeans consider to be pressing issues, the first of which is the conference Borderless Europe: Blessing or Burden in Cluj-Napoca.

 

To fulfill our aims we need the help of your local!

We are looking for 2 locals to host 2 thematic conferences taking place from September 2016 to May 2017. The exact dates are still to be defined, depending on your convenience. During these 3-day conferences participants will gain knowledge on the thematic topic through workshops and panel discussions, with the aim of developing policy recommendations.

The topics of the conferences are:

  • European democracy in a global era
  • The rise of right-wing populism
  • Turkey and/in Europe
  • Student protests and the future of higher education
  • The EU: economic or social union?

The selected locals will be included in the application for Erasmus+ funding which we are preparing for the deadline of 26 April. While we prepare, write and submit the Erasmus+ application, you will be asked to help us in finalizing the application by becoming one of our partners. In case you have any questions regarding the Erasmus+ procedure we are happy to answer them.

Concerning the thematic conference, the project team will:

  • take care of all the content for the conference
  • provide trainers and speakers
  • manager the PR of the event (in cooperation with the local)
  • handle the Erasmus+ application procedure  (in cooperation with the local)
  • handle the application procedure of participants  (in cooperation with the local)
  • select the participants (in cooperation with the local)

The host local should offer:

  • lodging for 35 – 50 people
  • facilities for the conference
  • 3 meals a day
  • social programme
  • local transport
  • support us with the Erasmus+ application by becoming our partner

This event will offer your local the opportunity to actively contribute to AEGEE-Europe’s Strategic Plan 2014-17, while receiving more visibility on local and European level.

To apply, send an email to yourvisionforeurope@aegee.org before the 9th of April 23:59 CET (extended deadline). In your application you should mention:

  • Your name
  • Your local
  • Which conference (topic) are you interested in
  • Why would you like to host the conference
  • When (approx.) can you host the conference
  • Experience in organising events

 

In case you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

 

Your Vision for EUrope Project Team,

Lara, Marijn, Maarten, Eva, Oguz, Jelena, Adonis, Katharina, Elinne, Viola, Leonie, Tedi, Cosmina, Aleksandra, Roberto, Ioanna, Neda.
