Do you have a passion for photography and journalism? Do you like getting to know people and discovering their stories? Do you want to find out how people relate to "Europe"? Then why not become a reporter for Faces of Europe!

Faces of Europe is a photoblog launched by the Your Vision for EUrope project, a new project by our partners AEGEE-Europe. Inspired by the famous Humans of New York, the photoblog aims at making Europe more personal and exploring the human diversity of our continent. The organisers want to collect and spread the faces and voices of people from different social, cultural and national backgrounds and to find out what "Europe" means to them.

Join us

E&M is looking for new editors and project managers to join our exciting and innovative online magazine and help us redefine European journalism.

About the magazine

E&M is Europe's first online lifestyle magazine created by young Europeans for young Europeans. We believe that modern, connected Europe deserves a modern, connected form of media.

We aim to "make Europe personal" and want your help in doing so.

Editing E&M

We are looking for passionate, inventive and committed editors to join our editorial board and help guide the project either as editor of one of our five magazine sections (Brain, Heart, Diaphragm, Baby and Legs) or of our blog Sixth Sense. You will:

  • Pitch, commission and edit five articles for each quarterly issue (magazine editors) or at least one article per week (blog editors) by authors from our international network
  • Contribute to decision-making in the running of E&M through editorial Skype conferences

The group who met in Berlin to launch the EVS4ALL project  

 

At the end of April 2015 the Allianz Cultural Foundation welcomed a variety of different groups from across Europe to their Berlin headquarters to launch the EVS4ALL project. As one of the media partners of the event, E&M’s Chris Ruff was there to witness two days of knowledge sharing, diligent planning and infectious optimism for the future of Europe.

 

"We are Europe!" was the rallying cry of the late, great German sociologist Ulrich Beck as he, with his close friend and fellow European titan, Daniel Cohn-Bendit, sat down to write a manifesto for the future of Europe.

 

What they envisaged was a Europe built "from the bottom-up". A Europe far removed from the technocratic elites who so often dominate the news. A Europe "for taxi drivers and theologians, for workers and the workless, for managers and musicians, for teachers and trainees, for sculptors and sous-chefs, for supreme court judges and senior citizens, for men and women".

 

In order to disentangle ourselves from the clutches of the euro-crisis, we must re-build our civil society and rediscover those traits which bind us together, instead of those which tear us apart.

 

But how, I hear you ask, is this wonderful Europe of people supposed to happen? And haven’t we been moving precisely in the other direction in the years since the great crash of 2008?

Wanted: A European Superhero

What form would the ideal European superhero take?

For a Diaphragm feature in Issue 28 of E&M, we're going to be creating European superheroes and need your help in coming up with the designs.

Many of you will by now have probably seen Matt Shearman's interview with Nicolas De Santis, creator of Captain Euro, but we're not convinced that the high-kicking hunk offers everything that Europe needs in a superhero and want you to help us come up with some alternatives.

What would your European superhero look like? Would he or she have a day job? Maybe a side-kick too? What kind of superpowers would come in handy? And what about the all-important outfit? Would it be blue and star-spangled like the flag of Europe or a hotchpotch of all the colours of countries in the continent?

If you've got an idea for the perfect European superhero, please send your written suggestions (max. 250 words) by email to the Diaphragm team, who can be contacted via frances [at] europeandme.eu and rike [at] europeandme.eu.

The best entries will be turned into cartoons drawn by the wonderfully talented Laura Hempel and published in the April edition of the magazine.

Deadline for entries: 2 February 2015

Join E&M!

 two

We like Europe. We like each other. And we’d like you to join us on our quest to redefine young European journalism.

E&M began producing transnational journalism written by young Europeans for young Europeans back in 2008. Since then we've come a long way. We've published 26 regular editions of our online magazine, won a Charlemagne Youth Prize, held a continent-­wide Young Journalist Award, launched a blog and organised a series of projects, ranging from debates and journalism work­shops. We want to build on this, but for that we will need reinforcements: more writers to add to our list of over 100 contributors from every corner Europe, plus at least one more editor to help steer the E&M ship.

You don't necessarily need to have any journalistic experience to apply to work with E&M (although it's great if you do, of course). We're more interested in your passion for Europe and the ideas you have about contributing to a personal, transnational dialogue between young people across the continent.
