What is e4E?

develop yourself, explore Europe

Are you between 18 and 23 years old? Get ready to pack your bags!


E4E is the coolest European youth program! During a three-week program you get to explore the cultural wonderland of Luxembourg, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, and Italy. Thereโ€™s a spot for one person of each EU member state (including UK), meaning youโ€™ll join a group of 28 nationalities!


This program takes place every two years, and the eighth edition sets sail in the summer of 2024!

Why join?

Experience new cultures

Thereโ€™s something so special about staying in a foreign country, learning about local ways of living, a new culture and understanding different points of view.

Three weeks full of cultural excursions, city trips, outdoor activities: a lot of fun. Travelling with a group of young people is a guarantee to make friends for life.

Unified Europe

At E4E we believe in the power of a unified European Union, where youth are the driving force behind positive change. We think unity knows no borders. By joining, you can become an active participant in this vision, promoting unity, understanding, and cooperation.

Reviews

โ€œEurope 4 Europe is a wonderful and unique opportunity. And itโ€™s crazy: we all had things in common, despite coming from such different placesโ€

Man with EU Flag

Thinking about E4E just brings many fond memories back to me. It has been a few years since Iยดve participated in the program, but till this day, it has taught me how to work and interact in an international context. It opened my eyes to the many benefits of living in the European Union; one of them being the accessibility of cross-border travelling in Europe and how it can bring like-minded individuals in contact with each other.ย 


Today, across the European Union, I have many friends that Iยดm still in contact with and from time to time visit. The memories and amazing moments that we experienced will always stay with me.ย

The origins of E4E

In 1951, six countries (Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands) founded the European Coal and Steel Community. In 1958 it became known as the European Economic Community (EEC). In 1993 the name was changed to European Union. In 2006, six Rotary clubs from the founding countries of the EU came up with the idea to offer young people from the EU member states the opportunity to get to know the six founding countries better by experiencing the culture and cities together.

Black Right Arrow
European Union Stars

These Rotary clubs from six countries organize the 2024 edition, create the program and guide you during the three weeks:


Rotary Club Landgraaf (Netherlands)

Rotaract Parkstad (Netherlands)

Rotary Club Maaseik (Belgium)

Rotary Club Maasland-Lanklaar (Belgium)

Rotary Club Meda e delle Brughiere (Italy)

Rotary Club Appiano Gentile e delle Colline Comasche (Italy)

Rotary Club Thionville Porte de France (France)

Rotary Club Mosbach-Buchen (Germany)

Rotary Club Neckar-Odenwald-Kreis (Germany)

Rotary Club Luxembourg Hearts (Luxembourg)


The exchange fits perfectly with the objectives of Rotary International:

promoting peace in the world through better mutual understanding.

Rotary is a global network of 1.4 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change โ€“ across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
