OF Group work from above

The call for Our Future Europe 2014 for Dutch participants is extended until July 18!

Our Future Europe (OFE) is a youth exchange program for youths from Serbia, Kosovo and the Netherlands. If you are an engaged student, interested in social and political issues, and looking for international experience: apply now!

OFE 2014 offers the opportunity to learn more about European societies in relation to conflict and diversity. The history of violent conflict and current political relations between Serbia and Kosovo are an integral part of this program.

This year OFE will encompass:

– A study visit from 11-15 August 2014 in Belgrade, Serbia. Participants will visit international and governmental institutions, meet experts and activists, and share their perspectives with their fellow participants. After this visit, participants will write blogs about the experiences and insights they gained.

– An exchange visit from 11-18 October 2014 in the Netherlands. During this exchange, participants will learn about active citizenship through conflict transformation methods, citizen journalism, and the organisation of peer-to-peer activities in the months after the exchange visit.

Accommodation, food and beverages and a full program will be provided in both Serbia and the Netherlands. Dutch participants are required to contribute a participation fee of €40 and travel costs to and from Belgrade (estimated around €200).
