We’ve already teased our next regional summit, but now we’re ready to officially announce it: the Global Changemakers Euro-Africa Youth Summit 2012!
Where and when?
The Euro-Africa Youth Summit will take place in Brussels in June 2012. (The exact dates will be announced in time for the call for applications.)
We’ll be bringing 60 community activists, social entrepreneurs and volunteers from the two regions – Sub-Saharan Africa and Europe – to the summit. Applicants must be between 18 and 24 on the first day of the summit.
In particular, we’re accepting applications from those resident in the following countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and Europe:
SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA Angola Benin Botswana Burkina Faso Burundi Cameroon Central African Republic Chad Comoros Cote d'Ivoire Congo (DRC) Djibouti Equatorial Guinea Eritrea Ethiopia Gabon Gambia Ghana Guinea Guinea-Bissau Kenya Lesotho Liberia Madagascar Malawi Mali Mauritania Mauritius Mozambique Namibia Niger Nigeria Republic of the Congo Rwanda Sao Tome and Principe Senegal Seychelles Sierra Leone Somalia South Africa South Sudan Sudan Swaziland Tanzania Togo Uganda Zambia Zimbabwe EUROPE Albania Andorra Armenia Austria Azerbaijan Belarus Belgium Bosnia and Herzegovina Bulgaria Croatia Cyprus Czech Republic Denmark Estonia Finland France Georgia Germany Greece Hungary Iceland Ireland Italy Kazakhstan Kosovo Latvia Liechtenstein Lithuania Luxembourg Macedonia Malta Moldova Monaco Montenegro Netherlands Norway Poland Portugal Romania Russia San Marino Serbia Slovakia Slovenia Spain Sweden Switzerland Turkey Ukraine United Kingdom
Please note that applicants must have a good command of English.
I have already taken part in a Global Changemakers summit. Can I still apply?
The 60 regular participants must be new Changemakers who haven’t taken part in previous summits. However, as with all recent summits we will be bringing 10 existing Global Changemakers (aged 18-25 on the first day of the summit) to the Euro-Africa Youth Summit as peer facilitators. They will be asked to apply between 30 January and 17 February as well.
How much does attendance at a Global Changemakers summit cost?
The British Council covers all costs (i.e. travel, visa, accommodation, meals, training costs) for the selected participants.
