“Do we need the EU? Find out by yourself – 100 years after the start of World War I”

The European Network of Agricultural Journalists (ENAJ) invites agricultural journalists, 35 years old and under, from its 20 member associations to participate in this workshop, in Brussels. It takes place between 24 and 27 September 2014.

ENAJ member associations (see list below) may nominate at least one candidate each, but we have in total 25 seats for this event so we will create a reserve list based on your suggestions for a “second” candidate.

Please send your suggested participant(s) to Katharina Seuser at kseuser@aol.com by 30th July at the latest.

Katharina will directly confirm nominations by e-mail and will on 31st July inform those accepted from the reserve list in order to obtain a group of 25 participants with the largest European mix possible!
