EurActiv Awards 2009

JEF Belgium

We would like to nominate JEF Belgium (Young European Federalists) for its continuous efforts to inform youngsters about the EU in a very tangible yet passionate manner. Motivating them to make themselves heard and to make the future of the EU their own.
What’s so special about JEF Belgium? It’s an organization that strives for a common goal, but gives it’s members the freedom to do it in their own way. It’s about working for a better Union, from the bottom up, making sure that better can mean better for all. Respecting individual needs and wishes, while maximizing their culminated potential. It’s subsidiarity at it’s best.
Thanks to JEF Belgium, we could start our own local section in Gent and meet youngsters from all over Europe. JEF showed us a Europe where everybody fits in and how we can get there. The people at JEF Belgium helped us to organize guided tours through the European quarter for high school, university and Erasmus students. We went to Strasbourg, expressed ourselves with streetactions, even organized a fully fledged political debate about the European elections.
In short, JEF Belgium made us feel part of the EU, it made us true Europeans. Because Europe is ours!

  1. I would like to support the nomination of JEF Belgium. They’re doing a fantastic work in bringing youngsters closer to Europe. Throught their various actions (debates, street actions for democracy, pedagogical projects, …) they really manage to reach a diverse and young public. It is sometimes considered very difficult to make Europe attractive and ‘sexy’ for young people, but JEF Belgium really succeeds in attracting hundreds of students and youngsters to be more involved!
