Invitation for ''Young Journalists for Tomorrow's Europe'' conference in Bratislava

25th – 29th October, 2015

Eligibility: All aspiring journalists from V4 countries (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovak Republic) between the ages of 18-24 years

For Tomorrow's Europe together with the Youth Parliament in Bratislava is calling 25 youth leaders (18 – 24 years old) from Visegrad countries to participate in a four-day international meeting! "Young Journalists for Tomorrow's Europe" (YJTE) will take place between October 25-29, 2015 in Bratislava, Slovakia with support of the Embassy of the United States in Bratislava and the Bratislava City Council.

The "Young Journalists for Tomorrow's Europe" (YJTE) conference welcomes young aspiring journalists and students of journalism or communication studies with an insatiable interest in the media. The conference aims to tackle the following themes: stereotyping in mass communication, investigative journalism, media ethics, the role of women in the media, presence of financial institutions in the media sector, and journalism in the digital age. Participants will attend a series of practical workshops with the assistance of experienced experts from the international journalism community and with the purpose of improving their writing and communication skills. Knowledge acquired during the conference will be utilized to produce a final written product presented on the last day of the conference.

Finally, it is our hope that the conference will provide the right environment for both alumni of the US Department of State Youth Programs and non-alumni participants to gain valuable journalistic skills and to learn from each other's experiences in order to become an asset for the media culture back home and be able and willing to respect the basic journalism values and principles while doing public service.

Eligibility criteria:

- You are a student aged 18 – 24 years old

- You come from either one of the V4 countries

- You are a student of journalism or communication studies or a student of any other field but with an insatiable interest in the media/journalism with an experience in this field


Please fill out the application form and send it in before 23:59 CET on July 15 2015. We will inform you about the results of the selection of participants by the end of July.


The conference is funded by the Embassy of the United States of America in Slovakia and the Bratislava City Council. All travel and accommodation expenses, as well as breakfasts and working lunches will be covered for the selected participants throughout the whole conference.
