GrazThe Closing Event in Graz is the fourth conference of the Erasmus+ project DISCUSSING YOURope of JEF Styria. It will take place in Graz (Austria), from 27th to 30th September (Thusday evening to Sunday lunchtime). During the conference we are focusing on the Structured Dialogue, a European process that involves young people in (youth)politics. Our mission is, to give you the tools to be a multiplicator of the European spirit of our organisation, #jefspirit. In the framework of the Structured Dialogue we are going to discuss with decision-makers and to participate in group workshops. We want to develop claims to improve the policies of the EU, to raise awareness about actual challenges, to give an insight in the decision-making process and to gain a common vision for Europe. Besides the content-based parts of the conference we are going to make cultural exchanging activities, a tour through the city centre and teambuilding.

You are going to be accommodated in shared rooms in a youth hostel near the main train station. Meals and accommodation are completely covered by funding of the program Erasmus+ Youth in Action, JEF Styria and local partners. Travel costs are going to be reimbursed with a fixed amount (maximum 170 Euro) which varies between the partner countries in relation to distance.
