“EU too” project aims to touch upon the following questions: “Who are the young people contesting European consensus and leaving it behind in favour of alternative ideas? Why do they feel badly represented? What is it that they want to change? What are they hoping for in the future?”
Followed by Budapest in September and Madrid in October, the next team of four selected journalists will travel from the 25th to 29th of November, 2015 in Krakow and meet with young people of the South Polish city in order to include their voices to the European debate.
Cafébabel seeks 2 print journalists, 1 photographer and 1 filmmaker with “a youth-friendly and off-the-wall tone, as well as an original and innovative style” as well as a creative storytelling backed up with facts, statistics and verifiable sources.
Interested candidates should be under 35 years old and reside in a European country.
