Call for Facilitators


Follow-up meeting for local consultations | 4-6 March 2022, Brussels (not online)
“Next Chapter Europe – Youth voice on the Conference on the Future of Europe”

The Young European Federalists Europe (JEF Europe) is looking for one Senior trainer and one Junior trainer to facilitate a 3-day expert meeting in Brussels, organized in the framework of the Next Chapter Europe- project.

About the project

The project ‘Next Chapter Europe – Youth Voice on the Conference for the Future of Europe’ aims at bringing the Conference on the Future of Europe (CoFoE) closer to young people at the local level through an informative pan-European campaign and discussion workshops. This included the creation of an exhibition on Europe’s past and future, presented at the European Youth event. Participants of the project will be able to talk confidently about the CoFoE and actively express their opinions, this was also essential during the local consultations of young people. The project is currently in its last phase, and thus a meeting to discuss outcomes of the local events and to plan the final activity will be organized in Brussels.
