Participants will experience three days of media workshops, political discussions, hands-on media production and invaluable insights into the European Parliament and international media milieu.
The event will take place on 16-18 October 2018 in Brussels, Belgium. Over the course of the three-day workshop, each young journalist will work to produce a report on the topic of the seminar through their medium of choice. They will interact with high-level European politicians, professional journalists and experts and engage in intercultural exchange through practical media production.
The topic “How to inform young voters on European Elections” will be addressed in workshops with professional journalists and experts and in two panel discussions with Members of the European Parliament, representatives of socio-political sphere in Belgium and other high-ranking guests.
- The EYMD are open to young journalists who are citizens or legal residents of the EU Member States, aged between 18 and 30.
Participants’ travel costs will be reimbursed by the European Parliament one to two weeks after the event, upon submission of all necessary documents. The European Parliament will also pay up to two per-diems of 180 Euros (360 Euros in total) to working journalists (who need to provide a press card, or letter of instructions from a European distributed media) to cover accommodation, meals and local transport. The lump sums will be paid at the same time as the travel reimbursement.
The young journalists chosen to participate will have to arrange their own accommodation and travel and provide the necessary documents to the European Parliament for reimbursement of travel costs.
