European Youth Media Days 2015

Media freedom is one of the cornerstones in the development of democratic societies in Europe and has become a constitutional guarantee in many European states since WWII as well as one of the fundamental rules in modern European Union. However, not all EU Member States score the best in media freedom watch and reports from ONG or human rights watchdogs, and media and journalists' liberties are an even more delicate issue in several EU neighbouring countries.

If these are topics that interest you, we invite you to apply to become one of the 77 young journalists, aged between 18 and 30, reporting from the European Parliament in Brussels between October 20 and 22, 2015.
The European Youth Media Days 2015 (which are organised by the European Parliament in collaboration with the European Youth Press – Network of young media makers), will focus on Media Freedom in Europe and beyond. The EYMD is one of the biggest events in Europe dedicated to young journalists.
