Call for Applications
We are looking for our new Europamobil-Team 2019!
Europamobil offers an exciting European experience for pupils and students. Each year, a group of 20 students from different European countries visits several schools in a European region (for example in Germany, Poland or France) in September by bus, the Europamobil, to run workshops on European issues. In 2019 Europamobil returns once again to Germany, to the land of Brandenburg (around Berlin).
Europamobil aims to enhance students' commitment to and pupils' interest in European affairs by making Europe tangible. Moreover, Europe-Mobile reveals concrete chances for pupils how to get mobile in Europe. Through their cooperation in the context of Europamobil students and pupils get to know their neighbouring countries and their people better. It is a way to increase their motivation to become active European citizens and to produce critical enthusiasm for the European idea.
Europamobil offers practical experience in teaching and in workshop presentations in an international environment. All participants may enrich their knowledge about European issues by participating in discussions with invited experts. Europamobil also gives an opportunity to build an international network and to reinforce intercultural skills.
