europeers at the Europe House Marienberg – multinational youth gathering

think europe is realising a multinational youth gathering right now with the support of the EU youth programme YOUTH IN ACTION. The gathering deals with the European Year of Volunteering.

Just yesterday three europeers took part in the gathering. They supported small international workshops. The youngsters dealt with the different situations of volunteering in the five nations which take part at the gathering (Turkey, Lithuania, Hungary, Poland & Germany). They also discoverd opportunities to be active for developing countries, what the European Year of Volunteering actually is and everything connected to the European Voluntary Service.

During the presentation-session the europeers participated in the discussion, commented on the performances and raised interesting questions.

Afterwards the europeers presented the EVS from their perspective, and talked about the experiences they gained abroad. They also briefly  presented the programme “europeers” itself.

Two of them stayed for the European country market in the evening with lots of music, dancing, food and fun!

It was great having had them with us. They enriched the discussion and presented volunteering peer-to-peer. It was active and not so theoretical. Hope to see you again here at the Europe House Marienberg in future projects.

Your voice is needed…European youth programme

In case you haven’t heard of it yet: The next generation of the Youth programme of th European Union will be (hopefully) launched after the current programme Youth in Action will expire by the end of 2013.

The programme is a great tool for multinational youth gatherings and offers also a great variety of European experiences for you personally.

The European Commission is currently asking you about the structure of the next programme generation. So you can include your opinions and points of view.

This online public consultation is available in all official languages of the EU and can be found on:
