Meeting Halfway supports many interesting projects at the European level. The team Europe on Track explains to us their very interesting initiative…
Europe on Track is a project from the European Students’ Forum (AEGEE) run entirely by volunteers, who aim to raise awareness, to create a space for discussion and to capture the opinions of young people in Europe on important social issues.
Thanks to Eurail, 6 ambassadors will travel by train across 22 cities in 1 month divided in 3 teams to deliver workshops, interview young people and organise events in cooperation with 200 volunteers. Besides, this year Europe on Track will have an extra online route to reach as many cities as possible in Europe. Through non-formal education, the ambassadors will encourage young people to be socially and politically active. The project intends to cultivate a society in which ideas and beliefs are inclusive and not dividing people based on their nationality, place of birth or discriminated communities. In Europe on Track, we want to inform and empower young people to take the lead in their own future, after the pandemic, through activism at the local, national and European levels.
As an Europe on Track Ambassador, you’ll travel by train with an Interrail ticket for a month (8th April – 6th May) across circa 10 cities encouraging youth to take the lead of their own future through activism. All the expenses are covered by Erasmus + and the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe!
Do you want to become part of the change traveling around Europe as one ambassador? Welcome aboard the #ActivismExpress!
