Europe-Mobile Team

Why participate in Europe-Mobile?

Participants gain practical experience in an international project environment and enrich their knowledge about issues related to European integration process.The students develop the programme themselves during a preparatory week of seminars prior to the travel.

During the whole project period assistance of two professional instructors is provided. The instructors act as seminar leaders and coaches, since they are experts in the field of pedagogical training as well as European integration.

“Participating in this project has been a very constructive experience for me, because I learned a lot personally, but also because it changed my vision of what Europe needs today.” (Appolonia, student 2009)

Vera Brand

My name is Vera and I am 27 years old. I am from the German city Stuttgart and I studied French cultural science and Intercultural communication at the University of Saarland. Soon, I will begin a trinational Master in Literary, Cultural and Language History of German-Speaking Regions. I strongly believe that communication is the best way to get to know other cultures and to develop relations between European countries. I already had the chance to live in France for one and a half year and besides French I also speak German, English and Spanish as well as a tiny bit of Swedish. Other interests of mine are p.e. going to the theatre, walking around in nature and playing Headis – if you’ve never heard of it before, I’ll show it to you! I am glad to be one of the twenty lucky students participating in the project Europe-Mobile 2017 and I am looking forward to build up a European network with you!

Paolina Daskalova

I am Paolina, 23 years old, from Varna, Bulgaria. I did my bachelor degree on Political Science in English in Sofia.
Travelling and cultural exchange have recently become the strongest means to shape my personality. My driving force is the believe. Thus, my main focus has become the young people where one can work for strong and conscious civil society. The latter can affect the future of our continent by making being an European a virtue for each one of us. :)

Xavier Deruytter

My name is Xavier Deruytter and I´m 27 years old. I live in Roeselare, Belgium and have a heart for travel, culture, human rights and French Flanders. I have been on workshop weeks and congresses in Slovenia, Estonia and Sweden. After a visit to the European Youth Centre in Strasbourg France, I saw which opportunities Europe holds in its core.
Europeanisation is a course topic of my studies political sciences at University of Ghent. People don’t feel or don’t see immediately the benefits of the Europe/member states relationships. That is why it is an honour to join a project that brings the European Union closer to young people. #WeareEurope

Lauren Duffy

Hi! My name is Lauren and I have just completed my undergraduate degree in International Relations and Politics at the University of Plymouth. I thoroughly enjoyed the content of the course and I would like to further pursue my interest in European and global affairs through my participation in Europe-Mobile. I hope to learn more about European integration and the future of it, particularly in the light of the BREXIT vote. I look forward to the project as it will give me the opportunity to meet a diverse range of people, travel to new places and transfuse my knowledge to the next generation. In my spare time I like to run, climb and paint!

Jernej Grahor

My name is Jernej and I am a European. I am currently finishing my undergraduate studies at the faculty of Social Sciences in Ljubljana, field of European studies. My life would not be the same, if it were not for the time spent in two non-governmental organizations that gave me so much experience and unforgettable moments; a youth organization of the Slovene Scouts and a student’s organization AEGEE-Ljubljana.I like traveling and meeting new people along the way as it is the best way to broaden your horizons, build tolerance and understanding towards others. That is a skillset that Europe currently lacks and needs, to build a better future.

Hi, my name is Daniel Laudy, 21 years old and I am from Germany. Politics have fascinated me since I was a child, so I decided to study Political Science at the University of Duisburg and Essen. I love to discover new places and to get in touch with people. In my free time, I love doing sports, hanging out with friends and going to the cinema. Since I have already profited so much from a united Europe, I want to help spread the European idea and want to learn more about the pupil’s thoughts on Europe. Furthermore Europe-Mobile will be a fantastic experience for me, as I will get to know new people from all over Europe and will be able to discover a new part of Germany!

My name is Katharina Lorenz and I‘m 23 years old. Currently I am living in Berlin where I‘m almost finished with my bachelor degree in Social and Cultural Anthropology as well as Political Science. I have participated in various intercultural and educational programs, lived in different countries, traveled and thus always enjoyed working with and meeting people from different places. Equally, I always enjoyed working with young people. Europe (and the European Union) seems to be an increasingly important topic against the background of current political and societal developments – which is why I believe Europamobil is a great project and chance to explore ‚Europe‘ with people from various countries and pupils. of the world. I am sure that this experience will help me to strengthen my skills and to build good relations with other young Europeans, all joined together to show the young face of the Europe of the future. I can’t wait to start!

I love to travel, to learn new languages, to discover new places and meet new interesting people. I´m very excited to be part of the Europemobile team 2017!

Hello everyone! May I present myself shortly. I’m Nuria and I’ve already lived 23 years on this wonderful planet. I feel European due to my bicultural background, German-Spanish. As I have always been interested in history and the complex social structures that formed our identities in Europe, I decided to study Archaeology in Freiburg, Dublin and Basel. What I like most about Archaeology is the intercultural contact, both with the past and present.
In my spare-time I love to travel, meet new people and broaden my knowledge about politics and Europe. Therefore I am always looking forward to getting to know new cultures and to meet fellow young Europeans and Europe-Mobile in Brandenburg!

Under the aegis of Genshagen Foundation proceeded Europe Mobile 2017 in Brandenburg strikes me optimally suitable to take up a new challenge. Europe is our future. We must care about and not destroy it! In order to do so, we have to understand its complex institutions. As a so called Young European Professional (YEP), I’m still teaching political sciences with a focus on Europe at educational institutions.

This year I participated in an Erasmus exchange, I did two semesters in Bordeaux, France. There I discovered how much I like being a part of international environment, from meeting new people to learning new languages. I very much enjoyed learning about the topics that interest me, such as European Union, and at the same time understanding other people point of view of the problems. I believe that international opportunities such as Erasmus or Europe Mobile are golden, since everyone that participates gets something from it! Therefore, I am very happy to be a part of this project!

Nina Ziller

Being part of Europe-Mobile absolutely represents my wish to support education and tolerance. Especially our generation needs to feel the importance of Europe, it’s solidarity and diversity. Alongside my studies in social- and communication science I love to travel, meet friends or play theatre and others often describe me as an impressionable, ironic person. Getting to know different people and cultures personally feels like the best way to understand society and teaches empathy at once.
