European Student Think Tank
1989 Generation Initiative
Anti Corruption International
Campus Europe works with many partner organisations from all over Europe. Firstly, we produce video content together with currently ten partner student TVs, who in the near future will also become more independent in our network. Secondly, we regularly work together with other youth organizations on short-term projects, such as with the European Student Think Tank, the 1989 Generation Initiative, Albanian Youth Steps in Europe, Anti Corruption International on our joint project Pitching Europe.
CampusEurope is an international network of student TV stations and young authors from all over the continent working together to produce a truly European media. We bring together young Europeans to create a platform where they can inform themselves and discuss, improving the mutual understanding of young Europeans. We aim to give the youth a prominent role in our media landscape, and give a voice to Europe’s younger generations. Our principle: "A European Generation deserves a European Media"
Although our problems have become ever more European over the last decades, public perception has not followed. And media is to blame. As most media is highly national in portraying both issues of all kind, many people are informed one-dimensionally. These news from purely national angles are particularly unsuited for our generation, the “Erasmus Generation”. Therefore we want to give European students a new platform, where they can create and share their own European media.
A success would be to have a constant output of high-quality media, with growing numbers of members and audience alike. This would entail having one to two people working (at least part-time) for Campus Europe to co-ordinate a growing network and new formats.
If selected, we will register as a non-profit under Belgian law, and pay at least one person to take care of Campus Europe’s programm and development. Our network will become more institutionalized, and our output become even more regular.
We would register as non-profit organisation under Belgian law, using the Maastricht University Campus Brussels office space for one person. This person, together with the other (voluntary) team members, will coordinate productions of and with our partner TVs, creating scripts, overseeing the production and organize the articles section by supporting the work of the editors.
He/she will slo establish new guidelines on cooperation and institutionalize our current partnerships, as well as secure proper financial planning and administer the homepage.
In the last step, Campus Europe would hold a small conference at the UM Campus Brussels, bringing together its team members, partner organizations and guests. This event will be used to outline the future steps and partnerships.
Firstly, CampusEurope aims to inform and attract students, and to give them a platform to publish their own work and inform themselves. Our focus lies on European students, although “European” is not bound to the borders of the EU member states.
Once CampusEurope has established itself as a dynamic platform for youth news, it can also become interesting for older generations to get a glance at youth opinions.
Campus Europe is different from other initiatives because it not only targets and engages, but is also produced and managed solely by European students. This guarantees that communication between makers and audience is honest and direct, with no additional layer of older professional in between.
Moreover, CE is not connected to any political movement, but open to all sides. Our goal is not to bring our own viewpoints to others, but merely to offer a platform for exchange.
