Youth Talks – Open call for speakers

poslední aktualizace pondělí, 10/10/2022

Apply to take part in our Youth Talks to make your voice heard!

Throughout the European Year of Youth 2022, the European Commission and the European Education and Culture Executive Agency are organising Youth Talks as part of various large-scale European events. Youth Talks are inspiring speeches for young people by young people, performed in front of a live audience, streamed online, and recorded. The final video recording will be subtitled in 28 languages, and will be shared on the EU Academy platform as part of the General Online Training for the European Solidarity Corps. 

We are currently looking for speakers aged 18–35 to share their unique stories in Brussels on 5 December 2022, at the Permanent Representation of the Czech Republic to the European Union. 

This time we are looking for…

Have you participated in humanitarian aid interventions organised by the EU, such as the EU Aid Volunteers initiative, or as part of an international partner organisation of the European Commission? Do you have a story about how the most vulnerable groups such as internally displaced persons, refugees, etc. can be supported the best? Were or are you currently involved in a well-working volunteering project that focuses on humanitarian aid? If you consider yourself a young humanitarian with a story to share, please apply.

Are you passionate about education and training? Do you have innovative ideas about how to engage all generations in learning? Have you found a unique way to improve the competences of various target groups? Share with us your vision about how to develop skills in the best way. 

Are you concerned about mental health and prevention? Do you have experience with tackling mental health problems, or improving mental health conditions of your peers? Do you think that taking care of your own mental health is the first step for helping others? Share your story!

Do you have a burning desire to share your story about one of these topics? Apply now!

Before applying…

Becoming a speaker at the Youth Talks requires you to invest time and energy. Selected speakers participate in an online coaching process which lasts about 4-6 weeks. Speakers receive training, preparation, and support from a professional coach to improve their public speaking skills and find their unique storyteller voice. It is not only a talk, but also a learning experience.

If you have an inspiring story to tell and you feel like joining this learning journey, please fill out the following application form and upload a one-minute video introducing yourself and your story by 23:59 on 12 October 2022.
