WELCOME TO EUROPE LAB!
Europe Lab unites young people from over 30 European countries, unlocking opportunities for dialogue and common learning. Participants work on cross-sector topics, share best practices, network, develop partnerships and start common international initiatives. Over the last five years, our community has grown to include young activists, cultural practitioners, researchers, artists, NGO and media actors, (social) entrepreneurs and representatives of many more sectors.
Every year in July, the EU-Russia Civil Society Forum invites active people aged in their 20s and 30s from the EU,
Russia and other European states for the annual summer Lab and various other activities. Common projects developed during the Lab, get the chance to receive follow-up grants. The working language is English.
Europe Lab is organised in different places in Europe, all connected to the topic of Historical Memory. Since the creation of Europe Lab in 2015, participants have had the opportunity to visit Lithuania, Croatia, Poland, and Romania, each time with a focus on a specific issue relating to European historical memory. Dozens of projects have been supported and hundreds of participants have learned, engaged, and discussed.
The current, sixth edition of Europe Lab, focuses on the topic of Decolonial Encounters, and features unique opportunities to engage with decolonial theory and practice, with an extended hybrid format. The kick-off took place at July 15!
