Open Call Project Team EoT 5

For the past month, 6 curious individuals have been travelling all around the network, creating spaces for discussions and dialogue, collecting opinions on Europe and enjoying the hospitality of more than 20 different antennae.

Do you know who we are talking about?

The Ambassadors of Europe on Track, of course!

What? You have never heard about this incredible project before? Then listen up!

Europe on Track (EoT) is a youth-led project where six Ambassadors cross Europe with InterRail passes for one month informing and interviewing young people about their vision of the Europe of tomorrow. To capture their thoughts and their ideas they take part in local events all around the AEGEE network focusing every year on a different topic, in this way they create spaces for dialogue and trigger active discussions.

Seems cool, right?

It is indeed! Check the trailer!

In a few days, Team Red and Team Blue will end their trip at Agora Enschede after visiting more than 20 countries, from Russia to Italy, from Turkey to Denmark, and engaging an endless amount of people in discussions and activities on the topic of civic education and active citizenship. You can learn about their adventures by checking articles, videos and pictures on different social media (blog, FB, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube).

EoT has also already accomplished a lot in the past:
The first edition took place in 2012 and addressed people’s vision for Europe in 2020, the project had a great success and was awarded the prestigious Charlemagne Youth Prize (granted to the best youth european project) in 2013.
In 2014, the focus was on the elections for the European Parliament to increase voter turnout, and in 2016, we had “Borderless Europe” as a theme, tackling the topics related to migration and the refugee crisis.

Now YOU get the chance to shape the fifth edition of Europe on Track!

    • Fundraising
      Definition of FR strategy, research and application of every possible grant or sponsorship.
