It is time to organise the next Eduk8 event: ESN Autumn Training 2017! 
 
Are you looking for new challenges, new achievements and to refresh the motivation of your local section? Are you ready to take a step forward? This is the right moment! We are looking for an OC ready to take this challenge with us!
 
This event will benefit from financial support of the European Youth Foundation grant and the following email and attachments provide a lot of detail for potential Organising Committees to be aware. However, don’t be scared by the length and detail of these documents, as we just want you to have all the information and support necessary when preparing your application!
