European Youth Media Days 2013

National problems, European solutions? Is the EU’s grass still greener? – Next generation of journalists meets in Brussels.

From October 15 to 17 2013, 120 young journalists from across the European Union will gather at the European Youth Media Days for high-ranking debates and hands-on media production.

The seventh edition of the European Youth Media Days will be held at the European Parliament in Brussels. The European Youth Media Days 2013 focuses on current issues of the EU and on the upcoming parliamentary elections. Participants will look into who is ensuring the change and sustainability of the Union and investigate the actual impact of the #Occupy movement on the policy-makers in Europe.

Amongst the speakers and panellists joining the event this year are journalists Morten Crone from Berlinske and Stephen Fidler from the Wall Street Journal, as well as MEP Sabine Verheyen and Gareth Harding from Missouri Journalism School.

Over the course of the three-day workshop, each young journalist will work with peers to produce a report on the topic of the seminar through their medium of choice: video, photo, radio, print or multimedia.

Participants are from 27 countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and UK.

Hosted by the European Parliament and organised in cooperation with the European Youth Press, the event aims to promote a broad discussion and networking on European issues, confronting and provoking with diverse perspectives and realities. With 120 participants, the European Youth Media Days is one of the biggest events in Europe for young journalists.
