International Berlin Seminar 2022

Announcement

We are happy to announce that from 12.05. – 15.05.2022 JEF Germany will host the 22nd edition of the famous International Berlin Seminar (IBS)! The IBS gives you the chance to meet young Europeans for four interesting days of discussion, workshops, panels, seminars and social events.

This year´s IBS will focus on the European Year of Youth 2022 with Tirana as the European Youth Capital of 2022.

For four days, you and more than 40 inspiring young people aged 18-26 from all over Europe and especially the Western Balkans will get the chance to discuss, explore Berlin and find answers to questions regarding the EU enlargement policy and beyond.

Together we want to develop our own vision of Europe and broaden the perspectives of young people. More importantly – we want to shape the Europe of tomorrow: federal, inclusive and democratic.

 

The current EU enlargement policy exemplifies the inability of the European Union to fulfill its ideal of an open society. The hope of the Western Balkan states to join the EU is still out of reach.

Within the EU democratic values are jeopardized and the rule of law – one of the EU‘s founding principles – is called into question. In order to create a common European future, a broad dialog both with the candidate countries and within the EU is needed. The European Year of Youth offers the opportunity to engage in this dialogue and articulate the demands of young people within and outside the EU.

 

During the IBS we will focus on the European Year of Youth 2022 with Tirana as the European Youth Capital of 2022. We will hear from experts on European politics and engage in workshops to discuss our ideas for the future Year of Youth. Berlin as Germany’s political center is the ideal venue for these debates. However, Berlin is also a symbol for a liberal way of life. Next to its vibrant atmosphere, Berlin is still the place to go for individuals, who are considered different elsewhere. The city has profited from this by becoming a great destination in terms of arts, music and culture, attracting tourists from all over the globe. The IBS is your opportunity to discover this wonderful city!

 

Are you ready for an amazing experience at this year´s IBS? Experts on politics, new methods, intercultural exchange and lots of food for thought are waiting for you!

The participation fee of 80,00 € includes accommodation, full catering during the seminar and the different workshops and trainings.

The participation fee, according to §4 Nr. 22a VAT Act, and the included share in meals and accomodation, according to §4 Nr. 23 VAT Act, are exempt from turnover tax.

Travel costs will be reimbursed based on actual costs (tickets required as proof) up to a maximum of 100€ (up to 800km distance), respectively 150€ (more than 801km) distance. Please note our General terms and conditions.

 

The application deadline was 20 February, 23:59 CET

Background information on this series of seminars: jef.de/projekte/internationales-berlin-seminar (German)

Participants have been informed via e-mail. Please check your inbox! If you haven’t received any information at all, please reach out to us!

Information on Covid

NOTE: To ensure the safety and wellbeing of all participants, the Seminar will take place in strict adherence with health and safety regulations. Participants will be provided with guidelines on public health measures to be followed at all times. Depending on the regulations, you might be required to test for Covid-19 prior and during the seminar.  If the pandemic situation won’t allow a seminar on-site, the seminar will not take place at all. Should this be the case, participants will be informed well in advance.

Travelling during the pandemic

We will try to keep you updated on travel restrictions as best as we can, but the responsibilty to comply with all travel restrictions and further measures due to covid is yours, at all times. The purpose of this site is nothing more than loose orientation on this topic.

general travel restrictions:

On entry in Germany you must provide a negative test result or proof of vaccination or proof of recovery. Please check whether your vaccination is accepted as such in Germany on this page: https://www.pei.de/EN/newsroom/dossier/coronavirus/coronavirus-content.html;jsessionid=DA2A9953BC3F14AD8E7D14D02998CB3A.intranet221?cms_pos=3

In the download section further down the page you’ll find a brief document by the Federal Ministry of Health outlining the current restrictions in English. Please note that these regulations might change in the future.

risk areas

Germany currently declares risk areas in two different categories:

  1. high risk area
  2. area of variant of concern

Entry from risk areas is regulated much stricter, and may even be unfeasable. However as of March 1, 2022 areas won’t be designated high risk if omicron is the spreading variant. Therefore, currently, no country or area is considered a high risk area or a area of variant of concern. Keep in mind, that this may change at short notice. It is your responsibility to comply with all the travel restrictions Germany imposes.

Designated risk areas are available on this page: https://www.rki.de/DE/Content/InfAZ/N/Neuartiges_Coronavirus/Risikogebiete_neu.html


An easy way to check for the restrictions you must follow is to fill out the digital entry registration: https://www.einreiseanmeldung.de/#/

Further information will be provided in the future.

During the seminar

Although we do not know yet, which restrictions will be in place during the seminar, we want you to be prepared:

3G, 2G, 2G+?

In Germany the restrictions concerning entry to venues are labelled in the following way:

  • 3G: Entry will only be permitted with a negative test result or proof of vaccination or proof of recovery
  • 2G: Entry will only be permitted with proof of vaccination or proof of recovery
  • 2G+: Entry will either be permitted with
    • 1: proof of vaccination or proof of recovery plus a negative test result or
    • 2: proof of vaccination or proof of recovery plus a booster vaccination (3rd shot)

If possible, we highly encourage you to get vaccinated and boostered in time for the seminar.

In all the other cases, we will be able to provide tests if needed.


FFP2 Masks and social distancing will be mandatory in most venues and in public transport. Please bring enough FFP2 masks for the whole seminar.

  • Drinks (like our famous German beer) are not included in the evening programs, so please make sure to pay for your drinks before leaving the bar!
  • Respect the schedule! We have invested a lot of effort in this seminar and it will only run smoothly if we stick to the schedule.
  • Travel Reimbursement: TRavel costs will be reimbursed after the seminar. Please be aware that you need to keep your original tickets. You will have to send them back to us together with a reimbursement form which you will receive separately.

International Berlin Seminar 2021

Announcement

We are happy to announce that from 19.08. – 22.08.2021 JEF Germany will host the 21st edition of the famous International Berlin Seminar (IBS)! The IBS gives you the chance to meet young Europeans for four interesting days of discussion, panels, workshops, seminars and social events. This year’s IBS will focus on democracy and rule of law.

For four days, you and more than 30 inspiring young people aged 18-26 from all over Europe will get the chance to explore Berlin, discuss and try to find answers to questions regarding the state of democracy and rule of law in Europe and beyond. Together we want to develop our own vision of Europe and – more importantly – a way to shape the Europe of tomorrow: federal, inclusive and democratic

<< All applicants have been notified by us via e-mail. Please check your mailbox! >>

The Covid-19 pandemic has been used to suspend human rights so that authoritarian tendencies have become more visible in some countries. The principle of the rule of law has been part of the legal basis of the EU for almost forty years, but it cannot be taken for granted. A central aspect is the separation of law from political power. More specifically, this ensures that the law always takes precedence in order to establish, among other things, an impartial and independent judiciary and to prevent arbitrariness by the executive. Nevertheless, not all European governments respect this central principle equally. Democracy is under pressure.

During the IBS we will focus on basic terms and concepts of democracy and rule of law, and particularly discuss the following aspects:

  • Post-factual era – are mis- and disinformation a threat to democracy?
  • We are the people! – populism as a style of governance
  • All humans are equal? About human rights and non-discrimination

Besides all, Berlin is not only a nexus of major economic and political institutions and civil society, but also a symbol for a liberal way of life. Next to its vibrant atmosphere, Berlin is still the place to go for individuals, who are considered deviant and different elsewhere. The city has profited from this by becoming a great destination in terms of arts, music and culture, attracting tourists from all over the globe. The IBS is your opportunity to discover this wonderful city!

Are you ready for this year’s IBS? Experts on European politics, new methods, games and lots of food for thought are waiting for you!

The participation fee of 80,00 € includes accommodation, full catering during the seminar and the different workshops and trainings. Travel costs will be reimbursed based on actual costs (tickets required as proof) up to a maximum of 100€ (up to 800km distance), respectively 150€ (more than 801km) distance.

NOTE: Distance is measured „as-the-crow flies“ using the Erasmus+ distance calculator between Berlin and your place of residence!

Applications are closed.

Contact for more information: berlinseminar@jef.de

NOTE: To ensure the safety and wellbeing of all participants, the Seminar will take place in strict adherence with health and safety regulations. Social distancing measures will be guaranteed in all activities organized by the Seminar. Participants will be provided with detailed guidelines on public health measures to be followed at all times. Depending on the regulations, you might be required to test for Covid 19 prior and during the seminar.  If the pandemic situation won’t allow a Seminar on-site, we will go digital with an accordingly adjusted program. Should this be the case, participants will be informed well in advance. If that will be necessary, confirmed participants are eligible for reimbursement of the participation fee as well as cancellation costs for booked tickets.

Background information on this series of seminars: jef.de/projekte/internationales-berlin-seminar (German)

Information on Covid

Unfortunately the current pandemic still forces us to establish some measures to ensure your safety. There will be a comprehensive hygiene concept that implements the legal requirements and takes additional precautions. We will make it available here in time for you to prepare.

Travelling during the pandemic

IMPORTANT: A Test is required for entry to Germany, you need to register it on the digital entry form.

Most important for you are the travel restrictions. It is your responsibility to comply with all restrictions, however we try to assist you by explaining the restrictions of entry to Germany.

Germany declares risk areas in three different categories, each with different restrictions:

1. Areas of variants of concern.

These are areas where new variants of the corona-virus are spreading. If you are from one of these areas participation is strictly prohibited!

2. High incidence areas

These are all areas where the virus is spreading fast. If you enter from such a region you are obliged to quarantine for at least 10 days, unless you can show proof of recovery or a vaccination certificate.

3. Basic risk areas

These are other areas where the risk of infection still is relatively high. If you enter from such a region you are obliged to quarantine too, unless you can show a negative test result, proof of recovery or a vaccination certificate.


In each case you are required to register your entry digital on this platform: https://www.einreiseanmeldung.de/#/

Further information is provided by the links below and the leaflet you can find in the download section at the bottom of the page.

If you are entering Germany from an area that is not declared as one of the three categories above, you can enter as usual.

Also a general obligation to test no matter from where or how you are coming to germany was introduced.

Introduction to the Berlin Seminar 2019

For four days, you and more than 50 inspiring young people from all over Europe will get the chance to explore Berlin, discuss and try to find answers to questions regarding digitalisation and its effects on politics, society and economy. Together we want to develop our own vision of Europe and – more importantly – a way to shape the Europe of tomorrow: federal, inclusive and digital.

The term of digitalisation is ubiquitous. In politics, economy or in everyday life – we are facing a development which is dynamic, fast and disruptive. The digital transformation offers a vast number of chances but entails also challenges that need to be addressed by players from every societal spectrum. During the IBS we will focus on basic terms and concepts of digitalisation, and particularly discuss the following aspects:

  • A fresh start: What are the chances of digital transformation? How can the digital and technological transformation be useful for a young civil society, such as the Young European Federalists?
  • Freedom at stake: How do desinformation, data theft, cyber crime affect our democracy and liberal society?

Besides all, Berlin is not only a nexus of major economic and political institutions and civil society, but also a symbol for a liberal way of life. Next to its vibrant atmosphere, Berlin is still a Mekka for individuals, who are considered deviant and different elsewhere. The city has profited from this by becoming a great place in terms of arts, music and culture, attracting tourists from all over the globe. The IBS is your opportunity to discover this wonderful city!

Are you ready for this years IBS? Experts on European politics, new methods and games and lots of food for thought are waiting for you!

Introduction to the Berlin Seminar 2018

We are happy to announce that from the 06.07.2018 to the 09.07.2018 JEF Germany will host the 19th edition of the famous Berlin Seminar with the slogan “Federalists on Bike”! Taking place in Berlin the seminar gives you the chance to meet fellow Europeans from over 20 countries for four interesting days of discussion, street-rallies, workshops, seminars and social events! The Berlin Seminar 2018’s edition will focus on the umbrella topic „Saving Europe – How? When? Who?“

During four days, you and more than 50 inspiring young people from all over Europe will get the chance to experience Berlin and its diversity, discuss and try to find answers to questions revolving Populism, Reform within the EU and Youth  engagement. We will help you to develop your own vision of Europe and – more importantly – a way to shape the Europe of tomorrow.

Berlin is a city, where Populism has played an important role throughout history as former capital of Nazi fascism. Furthermore Berlin saw in September 2017 a right-wing populist party moving into the Bundestag.

Besides all, Berlin is not only a nexus of major economic and political institutions and civil society but also a symbol for a liberal way of life. Next to its vibrant atmosphere, Berlin is still a mekka for individuals, who are considered deviant and different elsewhere. The city has profited from this by becoming a great place in terms of arts, music and culture, attracting tourists from all over the globe.

The European Union and European society faces different crises, the uprising nationalism and hatred against new Europeans has been a current topic in the last past month. Since the last European elections from 2014, 22 from the 28 member states have now right extreme or right-wing populism parties in the European Parliament. The year 2017 saw a lot of pro-European Movement grow, one of the most famous one, during the summer 2017:  “Pulse of Europe”. On the other Hand the German Elections but also the French and the Austrian Elections showed that the Eurosceptic Parties still had a large number of supporters. There for the last topic we want to focus on during the Seminar will be Youth Engagement. Europe is our future and we want to use our possibilities to reform Europe to its best.

Experts on European politics, new methods and games and lots of food are waiting for you!

 

The participation fee of 80,00 € includes accommodation, full catering during the seminar and the different workshops and trainings.[For travel cost reimbursement, see information left]

We are happy to announce that from 31.08. to 03.09.2017, JEF Germany will host the 18th edition of the famous International Berlin Seminar! Taking place in Berlin, the seminar gives you the chance to meet interesting people from over 20 countries for four intense days of discussion, street-ralleys, workshops and social events! This year’s edition of the International Berlin Seminar will focus on the topic “Europe and the World”.

During four days, you and more than 50 inspiring young people from all over Europe will get the chance to experience Berlin and its diversity, discuss and try to find answers to questions revolving around Europe’s role in the world. We will help you to develop your own vision of Europe and – more importantly – a way to shape the Europe of tomorrow: What is or should be Europe’s role in the world? What are new challenges, and what are possible scenarios for future developments?

Does Europe’s role in the world needs to be discussed anew? The European Union and the world face multiple crises, the so-called refugee crisis with a lack of solidarity, uprising nationalism and hatred against putative differences, mistrust and the disregarding of treaties. With all these challenges, however, there is an opportunity for change and rising activism all around the world. Join us in rethinking global politics and get to the bottom of Europe’s role in international relations!

Throughout history, Berlin has always been a city where international politics played an exceptional role. From the golden twenties to the capital of Nazi fascism, from the separation between the FRG and the GDR through the Berlin wall to student protests and the rise of subversive youth cultures. Today, Berlin is not only a nexus of major economic and political institutions and civil society but also a symbol for a liberal way of life. Next to its vibrant atmosphere, Berlin is still a mecca for individuals, who are considered particular and different elsewhere.

Freiburger und Straßburger Gespräche

Überblick

Treibstoff für den deutsch-französischen Motor in Europa  

Seit fast dreißig Jahren organisieren die JEF Freiburg und die JEF Baden-Württemberg gemeinsam mit der JEF Straßburg die Freiburger und Straßburger Gespräche. Junge Menschen aus Deutschland, Frankreich und mittlerweile auch aus der Schweiz treffen sich abwechselnd in Straßburg oder Freiburg, um über aktuelle politischen Themen zu diskutieren. Dabei geht es nicht nur um die Begegnung der jungen Menschen an sich sondern es steht auch immer der Austausch mit Entscheidungsträgern und Experten aus den drei Ländern im Fokus. Natürlich darf das gemeinsame Feiern nicht zu kurz kommen.

In diesem Jahr finden die Freiburger Gespräche vom 23. bis 25. November in Freiburg statt.

  • traditionsreiche Veranstaltungsreihe seit 1988
  • Beteiligung von Deutschland; Frankreich und der Schweiz
  • europäischer Austausch über aktuelle Themen

Überblick

Die Simulation Europäisches Parlament (SimEP) wurde 1999 vom Berlin-Brandenburger Landesverband der JEF Junge Europäische Bewegung (JEB) ins Leben gerufen und wird seitdem jedes Jahr mit großem Erfolg organisiert. Seit 2009 finden in Berlin jährlich zwei Simulationen statt, wo jeweils 200 Schülerinnen und Schüler aus dem Bundesgebiet für zwei Tage in die Rolle von Europaabgeordneten schlüpfen. Im Bundestag und Berliner Abgeordnetenhaus haben die Schüler*innen die einzigartige Gelegenheit, europäische Politik und parlamentarische Abläufe hautnah zu erleben. Unter einem jährlich wechselnden Motto diskutieren die Teilnehmer*innen in Fraktionen, Ausschüssen sowie im Plenum über aktuelle kontroverse europapolitische Themen. Dabei erfahren Sie auch wie viel Sachkompetenz, Argumentationskunst und Kompromissfähigkeit gefordert sind. Jedes Jahr wieder wachsen die Schüler*innen über sich hinaus, widmen sich leidenschaftlichen Diskussionen und entwickeln europapolitische Begeisterung. Im Jahr 2013 wurde die JEB für dieses Projekt mit dem europäischen Bürgerpreis ausgezeichnet.

Die Simulationsveranstaltung baut auf pädagogiscen Methoden und interaktiven Einheiten auf. Außerdem werden Gäste aus der Politik eingeladen. Mittlerweile wird dieses Projekt auch von anderen Landesverbänden angestoßen. Kreisverbände der JEF NRW veranstalten die SIMEP, JEF Baden-Württemberg lädt jährlich zum JEP (Jungen Europäischen Parlament) in mehreren Städten ein. Auch die JEF Hessen, die JEF Sachsen und die JEF Niedersachsen organiseren regelmäßig Simeps für Schülerinnen und Schüler.

PEF 2021 – Die Vorstellungen deutscher Parteien zur Zukunft Europas

“Das Europa von Morgen: Welche Visionen besitzen die deutschen Parteien für die Zukunft Europas?” Dieser großen Frage widmete sich das PEF mit dem Austausch junger Menschen mit jungen Abgeordneten.

Am 22. Juni, von 13.00 bis 14.30 Uhr, luden wir gemeinsam mit der Parlamentariergruppe der EUD im Bundestag zum nächsten PEF ein – dieses Mal als interaktives Webinar zur Rolle Europas im Bundestagswahlkampf!

Die Gäste für diese besondere Auflage des PEF:

  • Philipp Amthor MdB (CDU/CSU)
  • Franziska Brantner MdB (Bündnis 90/Die Grünen)
  • Metin Hakverdi MdB (SPD)
  • Michael Link MdB (FDP)

Die Moderation übernahm Jula Lühring (Beisitzerin im Bundesvorstand der JEF Deutschland).

Was ist das PEF?

Beim Parlamentarischen Europaforum im Bundestag organisiert die JEF gemeinsam mit der Parlamentariergruppe der Europa-Union Deutschland im Deutschen Bundestag eine interaktive Diskussion für junge Menschen mit jungen Menschen, als Abgeordnete, und auf Augenhöhe!

Das Format der „Fishbowl-Discussion“ ermöglicht einen Austausch auf Augenhöhe und setzt auf die aktive Beteiligung des Publikums.- auch online!

Zwei Mal laden wir zu diesem innovativen Format in den Deutschen Bundestag ein, um mit ca. 180 Interessierten, darunter Botschaftsangehörige, Wissenschaftler*innen, Studierende und Mitglieder und Mitarbeiter*innen des Bundestags, über ein aktuelles Thema zu diskutieren.

Das PEF steht in der Tradition der Parlamentarischen Foren, die 2003 zur Debatte um den EU-Verfassungsvertrag ins Leben gerufen worden waren.

Das letzte Parlamentarische Europaforum fand am 6. Oktober 2020 statt. Bei der interaktiven Fishbowl-Diskussion „Die Krise als Chance: Wie kann die deutsche Ratspräsidentschaft europäische Zusammenarbeit stärken?“ diskutierten junge und prominente Mitglieder des deutschen Bundestags über die politischen Forderungen der JEF zur deutschen Ratspräsidentschaft, u.a. Philipp Amthor MdB (CDU/CSU), Franziska Brantner MdB (Bündnis 90/Die Grünen), Konstantin Kuhle MdB (FDP), Johannes Schraps MdB (SPD).

Europawerkstatt

Europawerkstatt

Nach der Europawerkstatt ist vor der EWS!
Die Europawerkstatt fand vom 5. bis 7. Juli 2019 wieder in Berlin statt. Wir beginnen im Herbst mit der Planung der nächsten Ausgabe!

Überblick

Jedes Jahr lädt die JEF Deutschland zur Europawerkstatt (EWS) in Berlin ein, die das Ziel hat, junge Multiplikator*innen aus Verbänden und Organisationen mit Entscheidungsträger*innen aus Politik und Verwaltung zusammen zu bringen. Dabei bedienen wir uns dem Format der „Unconference“, das die eigentlich interessanten kleinen Gespräche der Kaffeepausen zum Prinzip macht.

Statt einer festgelegten Agenda können die Teilnehmer*innen am ersten Tag selbst Themenvorschläge für die Sessions einbringen und die folgenden Tage dann selbst entscheiden, an welchen Workshops rund um europapolitische Themen sie teilnehmen wollen. Die Themen der angebotenen Sessions reichen dabei von “Europäischen Wahlrecht” und “Europäische Werte” über “Sozialtourismus”, “TTiP”, “Klima und Mobilität” bis hin zu “Flüchtlinge in Deutschland“, “Investitionsstrategie” und “Russland”.

Der dritte Tag der Europawerkstatt wird dazu genutzt, die Diskussionen und Ideen der vorherigen Tage auszuwerten, zu vertiefen und weiterzuentwickeln. Die Multiplikator*innen können diese Chance nutzen, um sich für Projekte zusammen zu schließen, oder konkrete Ideen oder Forderungen zu den heißen Themen zu entwickeln.

  • neue Leute kennenlernen
  • über Politik diskutieren
  • thematische Workshops
  • tolle Referent*innen
  • aktuelle Themen
