The European Commission (EC) is seeking proposals to implement the second Pilot Project “A European public sphere: a new online media offer for young Europeans”. It seeks proposals of consortia gathering at least 5 media organisations, to produce daily, thought-provoking content from across Europe around current affairs, particularly targeting young Europeans.


This pilot project aims to engage with young Europeans by creating curated online spaces that gather thought-provoking content around themes and topics that are discussed at EU level. These spaces should allow them to compare perspectives from across Europe and empower them to discuss and discover how their interests link to interests of youngsters in other countries, and to relevant EU initiatives. Proposals should foresee selection and production of new content, to inform and engage young audiences across Europe in an open and constructive debate about recent and future life in Europe.
