Are you an ambitious and creative young European aged 20-30 who is actively engaged in civil society actions and for whom active citizenship is of particular relevance? Are you interested in running a project related to democratic participation, equal opportunities or European identity in your community or beyond? If so, FutureLab Europe is selecting 20 bright and committed young Europeans for its 2017 edition.
Projects ideas can include (but are not limited to!) a blog series, volunteering activities, a picture exhibition, artwork, short movie, school visits, a series of debates and should be connected to the programme’s focal topics:
Democratic values in Europe –
Equal opportunities for young people
Selected participants will convene to Brussels in February 2017 for a 4 days seminar on occasion of the FutureLab Europe Annual Forum, whereby they will become official members of FutureLab Europe’s sixth generation. On this occasion, they will have the chance to interact with international decision-makers, meet FutureLab Europe’s members of the previous generations, learn more about active citizenship and project management, develop ideas and take actions on how their own projects will be implemented during the rest of the year. After this introduction into the programme, each member of the sixth generation will turn ideas into concrete activities to be implemented at the national/local level with the (small-scale financial) support of FutureLab Europe. Following this implementation period, FutureLabbers will have the opportunity to present their group activities in Brussels in September/October 2017 and to debate their results with high-level decision-makers.
Deadline for application: 2 September 2016.
