What is the #Ensemble: Franco-German Youth Exchange?
After its successful first edition in 2020, the EYP is continuing #Ensemble, an innovative format of cultural and language exchange, in collaboration with the Franco-German Youth Office (OFAJ-DFJW).
The initiative builds upon the German and French EU Council Presidency, in 2020 and 2022 respectively as well as the federal and presidential elections taking place in Germany and France. The familiarisation of France and Germany in a cooperative context was a turning point in European history and part of the foundation of the concept of the peaceful Europe that we know today. In light of the Conference on the Future of Europe, we, therefore, want to bring the format one step further and offer a bilingual exchange for young people speaking French and German.
In the spirit of a united and democratic Europe, the project aims to foster intercultural exchange and mutual understanding. A key factor of this is languages, which is why Ensemble: Franco-German Youth Exchange takes place in French and German, with simultaneous translation of key programme elements.
