Bryson talk about their role in the European Voluntary Service
Listen to Bryson staff member Mary Hegarty and current European Voluntary Service volunteer Anja Romer talk about our role in European Voluntary Service and as a Eurodesk UK Partner Organisation. Bryson and our young volunteers from across Europe organised an event during Culture Night Belfast 2017. One of the activities created by Bryson was inviting the general public to write a “Postcard from the Edge of Europe” during these uncertain days around Brexit.
Following this event Bryson is a delighted to be invited to take part in a Europe-wide Eurodesk panel discussion in Brussels with a focus on the following area:
Marketing European learning mobility and awareness in times of crisis
Trends such as cultural fragmentation, identitarian closure and nationalism are on the rise in the EU member countries. While more and more people feel estranged from the European project, what is the best way to market learning mobility and European awareness? Are Erasmus+ and similar programmes an asset to counter-balance such trends or are they only benefitting pro-European young people??
