It's really important that you join your group as soon as you can. The competition launches on Sunday and we need everyone to be in their groups by then. Your editors will be able to help you much easier once you've joined them in one of the 4 groups displayed on the left sidebar.

I have just got the information about a Youtube Channel
dedicated to the World Economic Forum at Davos. A young Columbian videoblogger, Pablo Camacho, reports live from the conference - after having won a vlogging competition - and do little interviews with World Thinkers. From what I have seen, Pablo is doing a great job: asking questions and letting others speak. My questions are: Who will listen to the answers? And what impact will they have - if… Continue

So you all got to know about AEGEE's project - YVote2009 - at the launch event in Brussels. Since Milkshaker.eu and YVote09 are partners with similar objectives, we will provide you all upcoming events in a mean time so that you can decide whether you want to attend and write posts about it!

Just my 0.02 to thank the EJC and the competitors for the Brussels event. You we're great, really!
As this is my n
-th blogging conference, and it's still January so I am not expected to be concerning about EU-related business yet, I made a tiny blogging conference bingo
To play, simply print out this bingo sheet and attend a Web-related conference. The first one to fill a straight line or all four corners… Continue

I suppose (and hope), that (almost) all of you heard about AEGEE
(European Students' Forum) and our project "Y Vote 2009"
during the launch event in Brussels. :) As I noticed, there were quite a few people interested to find out about the project and organisation in general more, so I'll post some basic information.

I've never blogged before. I've written a diary (*long* time ago). I've written hundreds of articles and thousands, maybe even millions of e-mails and letters.
I've never read blogs before. Started to do it today. Still trying to understand what kind of blogs do I like, how do they look like and in what ways they are different from each other.
I have no idea what is the right word for "blog" in… Continue

I'm still 'high' on intellectual and international inspiration from the past days in Brussels!! It's been so great being back in that atmosphere of 'let's do something and make some influence on the World around us'. I can't wait till this gets properly started and will be looking forward to read your blogs.
Lots of energetic thought to you all, Julie

I would hereby thank EJC for organizing successful event in Brussels. The speakers were real professionals, facilities were operating, schedule was kept and program was interesting.

trying to organise my thoughts: what did i get out of this trip?
(no sightseeing, obviously. that's a shame though. at the last moment i could i still grabbed a waffel and a pommes de frit, just to be able to say: i at least ate brussels, if i did not see brussels.)

I didn't really know what to expect when I got to the airport - I've only ever left the country once before, to Cyprus for my sister's wedding. At security control, the officers took my belt and my shoes leaving me feel rather silly, before I met Kirsty, another girl from the North of England.
Take off was amazing! I'd do that every day if I could. The ticket said "snack" but was actually more like a meal, and I was very surprised to be served wine!
Me and Kirsty couldn't… Continue
