Join us in this year’s European Youth Conference ‘Regain or Retreat? European Youth in an Age of Uncertainty’ in Gdansk, organised in cooperation with the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung office in Warsaw and European Solidarity Centre!
The three-day Conference in Gdańsk will address issues including globalisation and European and nationalist answers to it. From July 24 to 26, we will explore the current challenges to open societies and inclusive democracies, and how people risk being divided along lines of integration and identity. Moreover, the programme will include practical workshops and ample space for networking.
Let us discuss important points of reference and processes that are shaping the worldview of engaged young Europeans, who on an everyday basis are searching for ways to make a socially responsible, just and sustainable Europe happen, and also focus on the causes of and reactions to growing feelings of uncertainty, injustice and fear in EU member states in a beautiful setting at the Baltic Sea!
The conference programme is still work in progress as it will also be modified according to the participants’ inputs! For more detailed information, please refer to the concept note of the conference, which can be found here, as well as to the framework programme, which will be specified based on the contributions of the applicants.
How can I participate?
Apply now until 30 April 2017 by submitting a short CV stating your fields of interests as well as describing your motivation and ideas concerning a personal contribution to the conference, and related experiences concerning visions of the future of European societies (on 1 page) to the coordinator Gert Röhrborn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can find the call for applications here.
Since the conference aims to engage and connect young people, we have to ask about your age (the main target group is young people aged 18-35). As we are strongly committed to equal opportunities and gender equality, we will aim as much as possible to bring together individuals of various backgrounds and origins from many European countries.
Costs for accommodation and board will be covered by the organisers and travel costs reimbursed.
