Fünf Städ­te und fünf Re­por­ta­gen: „EU in Mo­ti­on“ zeigt mit dem Fin­ger auf das, was Eu­ro­pa ge­ra­de be­wegt: Ar­beits­lo­sig­keit, Fi­nanz­märk­te und Ban­ken und die Frage, wie der Kon­ti­nent in der Zu­kunft aus­se­hen soll. Wir sen­den junge Re­por­ter nach Athen.


WHAT IS IT? In 2013 we launched our month­ly ed­i­to­r­ial se­ries, EU in Motion, which aims to make us think about the fu­ture of Eu­rope and where we're going with the elec­tions round the cor­ner.

TO DO WHAT: Val­oris­ing local, young pro­jects, ideas, sto­ries, ini­tia­tives and an­gles. Get out ‘on the ground’ and make us feel you’ve been hang­ing out and get­ting about in Athens. Go gonzo, don't go all 'in­sti­tu­tional' : be cre­ative, be per­sonal, whilst re­main­ing jour­nal­is­tic-minded with facts and sta­tis­tics, sour­ces and in­ter­vie­ws. Spend time with lo­cals, de­scribe what you saw/felt/learnt from them. Be crit­i­cal, the ‘EU’ isn’t an ide­ol­ogy for Caféba­bel


WAN­TED: We need two jour­nal­ists (print or video) and one pho­tog­ra­pher to join this mis­sion: writ­ing on the 5 fol­low­ing top­ics with the sup­port of our local host team:

  • Youth un­em­ploy­ment
  • Elec­tions in your coun­try: does Eu­rope mat­ter?
  • Fun­da­men­tal rights and pop­ulism rise among the youth
  • So­cial Eu­rope and qual­ity of life from the youth' point of view
  • How to reg­u­late fi­nan­cial mar­kets and banks

Make sure you don’t come un­pre­pared, so we can get down to busi­ness whilst we're there.

It’s your ar­ti­cle pro­pos­als that will get you no­ticed for this mis­sion: so be cre­ative, do some re­search be­fore ap­ply­ing; flog your idea don­keys to me.


LO­GIS­TICS: Book your own flights/trains to Athens: a sum of up to 280 euros is re­im­bursed by cafeba­bel (pro­vided re­ceipts are kept) upon re­turn from the trip and re­ceipt of the ar­ti­cle. Other tra­vel and food ex­penses are re­im­bursed up to 200 euros (for more in­for­ma­tion talk to our pro­ject man­ager Aman­dine). The team stays in a hos­tel that has al­ready been boo­ked by cafébabel.

ED­I­TO­R­IAL: The ed­i­tor in char­ge at Paris HQ, who will be lead­ing the trip to Athens. They will su­per­vise you in defin­ing the angle of your ar­ti­cle and mak­ing prepa­ra­tions for in­ter­views at least a cou­ple of weeks be­fore the trip is due to com­mence.

BUT: it’s up to you to do your own re­search be­fore leav­ing, to find in­ter­est­ing an­gles and book in­ter­vie­wees and de­velep ideas 'on the ground'. The writ­ten piece is due in strict­ly one week later, when the rel­e­vant lin­guis­tic ed­i­tor from the cen­tral Paris of­fice will edit your piece, which will be trans­lated by our vol­un­teer net­works, and then pub­lished in six lan­guages wi­t­hin the fol­low­ing month.


If you are under 35 years old and you live in a Eu­ro­pean coun­try, send us your CV, three-li­ne EU ­in Motion ar­ti­cle pro­pos­als (re­spec­tively one or two pro­pos­als for pho­to­gal­leries and some pic­tures if you apply as a pho­tog­ra­pher), lin­ked with youth mo­bil­ity and un­em­ploy­ment, the rise of pop­ulism in EU coun­tries, so­cial and fi­nan­cial is­sues in Eu­rope, as well as ideas for in­ter­vie­wees... be orig­i­nal! We look for­ward to hear­ing them!
