JEF Europe is leading the Erasmus+ project Road to the Future in the perspective of the European elections in 2019.
In that framework, it is seeking two external experts to become members of its Advisory Board. Applicants should have experience with youth mobility exchanges and/or efforts to boost democratic participation and political debate among young people.
What is Road to the Future?
Funded by Erasmus+ under Key Action 3 European Youth Together, Road to the Future aims to encourage and strengthen European-oriented youth participation for the European Parliament Elections 2019 and in the longer term for the future of Europe. It is led by the Young European Federalists (JEF Europe), who are joined in the consortium by several youth-oriented organisations throughout Europe, the Assembly of European Regions, and the Union of European Federalists.
Road to the Future will produce several major outcomes: an online campaign and platform for sharing youth perspectives on the future of Europe, a cross-union bus tour, large-scale events in Paris and Berlin, and scores of local debates and post-election activities organised by young trained to use new tools developed within the project.
The project will run from October 2018 through February 2020.
What will the Advisory Board do?
The Advisory Board (AB) will provide feedback and guidance to the project team, playing an integral part in the project’s Quality Assurance and Evaluation activities. The body is composed of 9 members, 7 of which will come from Steering Committee organisations as representatives not directly involved in the project’s management and implementation. External board members, to whom this call is addressed, will provide an external expert perspective on the project.
Participation in the AB will require 3 trips to our project meetings (most likely in mid-January, June and December 2019) and the preparation of recommendations together with other AB members. AB meetings will be held in Portugal and in Brussels.
The project will reimburse travel, accommodation, and food costs.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Agnese Pantaloni from the Assembly of European Regions, the leading partner for the work package on evaluation and monitoring. Be sure to express interest by 12 November.
