WORK/OUT European Students’ Review presents
European Youth Media Days – invitation for 270 young journalists

EYMD: Dialogue, education, networking
The European Youth Press and the European Parliament have organised an international congress at the end of June in the “European Capital”. The event is aimed at anybody who considers themselves a European citizen and would like to engage their journalistic voice in support of a united Europe.
All interested producers of media under the age of 25 – journalism students, radio and TV reporters, podcasters or bloggers – are warmly invited to apply now for the congress (27th to 30th of June 2007 in Brussels).
European Youth Press is the first international umbrella association of young news-makers and has now been supporting the next generation of European journalism for over three years. Although it was only recently created, it already numbers more than 48000 authors and editors of school and student newspapers aged under 30 from 13 national organisations, including the Federation of European Journalism Students (FEJS) and the German Youth Press.

Programme framework and themes:

The meeting will be based around the search for a common European identity.
The four-day congress allows time for personal conversations, numerous discussions with politicians and experienced journalists, workshops with experts and also an insight into the international world of media and politics in Brussels.

WORK/OUT European Students’ Review
was invited to the EYMD 2007 as an external international media representative and will organise a workshop in the “press” domain. Between 10 and 20 practising journalists from different countries will exchange ideas about cultural, political and social themes and will produce contributions for a special edition, to be released soon after the congress. The editing team of the only multilingual newspaper for European students has picked out particular places in Brussels, which the participants will discover on a historical walking tour.

All info and the archive editions of the newspaper can be found at www.work-out.org
