Social movements, new political parties and civil society protests – what is in the future of the European Union (EU)? Who is working to ensure change and sustainability of the Union? What has been the actual impact of #Occupy and other movements on the policy-makers in Europe? If these are topics that interest you, we invite you to apply to become one of the 120 young journalists, aged between 18 and 30, reporting from the European Parliament in Brussels from October 15 to 17 2013.
The 2013 edition of European Youth Media Days, which is organised by the European Parliament in collaboration with the European Youth Press, will focus on current issues of the EU and on the upcoming parliamentary elections. The European Youth Media Days is one of the biggest events in Europe dedicated to young journalists.
Participants will experience three days of media workshops, political discussions, hands-on media production and invaluable insights into the European Parliament and European media. They will interact with high-level European politicians, professional journalists and experts and engage in intercultural exchange through practical media production.
Over the course of the three-day workshop, each young journalist will work with peers to produce a report on the topic of the seminar through their medium of choice – video, photo, radio, print or multimedia. The event is open to young journalists who are citizens or legal residents of EU member states.
