Waves 2018 – What’s next?
IUC wishes you a happy Easter – and spring time – and promises bustling agendas as always.
Waves 2018 has kept us busy with a load of responsibilities and issues to sort through. An important milestone has been reached with regards to the Erasmus + application, in the end we had an impressive number of European partners on board – we are grateful for their participation and thank them for their support. Now we are waiting for the result and ready to embark on the next stage of what has grown into one of IUC’s most popular projects. A tentative program has already been released, along with a brief introduction to the workshops, which participants will be able to sign up for shortly. Updates will be provided very soon with the introduction of the project website and invites for participants from the partner countries.
MEP BSR Sønderborg DK – Autumn 2018
We are ready and aiming at returning to Sønderborg, soon introducing the next MEP BSR
conference, hosted by IUC, the MEP BSR organization and partners, planned for the beginning of October 2018. It will take place in the very city that hosted two of our Waves projects (in 2013 and 2015). Negotiations are still ongoing, but the program and session will be introduced in Ilawa, Poland in a few weeks, and we cross our fingers for success and support.
MEP BSR Upcoming Session
As announced earlier, the next MEP BSR session will take place in Ilawa, Poland, from the 10th to
the 15th of April. Young people from 11 countries will meet to discuss important European issues such as: the issues of separatism in modern Europe, the future shape of the EU, models of education in advanced societies, income disparity and the question of military integration in Europe. The session will be run entirely by young people, and the outcomes of the committee work and debates/voting at the General Assembly will be looked forward to eagerly.
Details about next month’s conference can be found on the official MEP BSR website. For a direct link to the program, click here.
In February we received bad news from the EUNET president Mr. Richard Stock. The EU Commission has decided not to support the network financially any more. RS states in his letter that the EUNET secretariat will be closed consequently, it assisted 78 organisations in 25 countries. A very sad decision!! The EUNET board is determined to continue its work with the support of members. IUC was one of the founding “fathers” of EUNET, we have been active in the network for more than 10 years and will of course assist in possible ways to keep the network going. More info at a later stage.
