Apply for the EU Congress in Germany – A New Narrative for Europe

Deadline: July 25, 2014

Young people from across Europe are invited to apply for the EU Congress taking place from 31st August – 3rd September 2014 in Bonn, Germany. The Regional Representation of the European Commission Bonn (RRep) and the Federal Agency for Civic Education (bpb) in Germany want to invite 60 young people from all Member States of the EU to a conference to discuss about the future explanation of the European Union in the 21st century.

It doesn’t matter if you are an expert or a beginner on European issues. Tell them what you think about how Europe should be understood in the future!


The conference will consist of 3 different workshops with the main topics “Society”, “Environment” and “Economy”. Each of the topics will be prepared in separate workshops and groups and brought together at the last day of the congress.

The aim of the youth congress is to have a document on a new narrative for Europe elaborated and adopted by the 60 young people during their meeting in Bonn – and to be handed over officially to the Commission President. High-level participation from the Commission envisaged as well as the assistance of the Minister-President of North Rhine-Westphalia, the Mayor of Bonn, etc.


The travel costs to Bonn, accommodation and full catering will be covered by the RRep and the bpb. Further information will be given to you after your successful application.
