Call for participants JEF Belgium Training Days

JEF Belgium has opened the call for its Training Days taking place in Brussels from 9 to 10 March 2013!

Don’t hesitate to apply HERE for the JEF Belgium Training Days!

Brussel Place de Lux

The evolution of the European Union is always on-going, always moving closer or further away from how different groups of citizens would ultimately want to see their European Union. As Young Europeans and Federalists, we have our own vision for Europe.

In order to share our plans with each other and learn a little something, JEF Belgium organises the third edition of its Training Days. We firmly believe that a 100% voluntary NGO can only be as strong as its members are. Therefore, the TD’s are aimed at improving our member’s skills in campaigning, debating skills and communicating the European message! After TD-editions in Liège and Antwerp, the 2013 TD’s will be organised in the heart of Europe: Brussels! We will start at Saturday morning and continue until Sunday afternoon, finishing our weekend with the JEF Belgium General Assembly, during which a new national board will be elected!

On Saturday, we turn our focus towards federalism and its meaning for young people in Europe by using interactive presentations and discussions. On Sunday, our participants will get ample opportunity to share their plans for the future of Europe and their ideas on how to achieve them! JEF Belgium is a young and dynamic organisation. The TD’s are therefore open to all young Europeans, no matter whether you are a newcomer to the movement or long-time member of any of its organisations such as the European Movement, UEF of JEF Europe. The training days are open for Belgian and non-Belgian participants. Not only because we welcome their ideas and input, but also because we – as federalists – take great joy in bringing people from different backgrounds together. So don`t be afraid to speak your mind and enjoy the ride!

When & where: 9-10 March 2013 in Brussels; from Saturday morning till Sunday afternoon;

Who: Young Europeans aged 16-30 interested in Europe!

How: Through interactive sessions, presentations and brainstorms with experienced and new JEF’ers

Deadline to apply: The deadline for applying is Monday, 18 February, 12pm CET. You will get an e-mail from us later that week.

Participation fee: ONLY 25 euro for members of JEF / European Movement and 35 euro for non-members. This participation fee covers everything: accommodation for 1 night in a youth hostel in Brussels, all meals and learning materials. Participants that do not need accommodation in Brussels pay 15 euro (25 euro for non-members), although we think it is cosier to stay in the hostel all together!

See you in Brussels!
