Präsentiert uns eure Ideen und Entwürfe zur Zukunft europäischer Städte auf dem European Congress for a World Culture Forum

Registrierung zur Teilnahme bis 31. Oktober 2008
Einsendung eures Projektes bis 30. November 2008

Überblick zum Wettbewerb
Vom 26. Februar bis 1. März 2009 wird in Dresden / Deutschland der European Congress for a World Culture Forum mit 500 Persönlichkeiten aus ganz Europa zum Thema »Kultur ist mehr – Europa im Spiegel seiner Städte« stattfinden.
Der Future City Youth Contest sucht eure Wünsche und Vorstellungen für die europäische Stadt der Zukunft, die in die Diskussionen auf dem Kongress einfließen. Präsentiert uns eure Ideen mittels künstlerischer Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten!

Grundgedanke des World Culture Forum
Der European Congress for a World Culture Forum versteht sich als ein Zwischenschritt auf dem Weg zu einem ersten »World Culture Forum«, das wir für das Jahr 2010 planen. Kultur schließt nach dem Verständnis des World Culture Forum nicht nur Kunst ein, sondern auch viele andere Bereiche unserer Gesellschaft, wie Politik, Religion, Wissen-
schaft, Bildung, Wirtschaft etc. All diese Teile der Kultur sind als gleichberechtigt zu betrachten, denn sie sind für die Entwicklung der Gesellschaft von gleicher Bedeutung. In unserer heutigen Zeit scheint jedoch die Wirtschaft alle anderen Bereiche der Kultur ins Abseits gedrängt zu haben. Auf dem Kongress 2009 soll dieses Ungleichgewicht des kulturellen Systems diskutiert werden.

Da die Stadt als Synonym für die Konzentration gesellschaftlicher Prozesse steht und als Mikrokosmos einer Gesellschaft alle Teilbereiche der Kultur beinhaltet, haben wir für den European Congress for a World Culture Forum als Thema »Kultur ist mehr – Europa im Spiegel seiner Städte« gewählt.

Hintergründe zum Wettbewerbsthema
Bis zum Jahr 2030 werden nach Schätzungen der UN mehr als 5 Milliarden Menschen, rund 60% der Weltbevölkerung, in Städten leben. Dazu, wie diese Städte, im Speziellen die europäischen Städte, aussehen, gibt es viele Ideen, Hoffnungen und Befürchtungen. Was wird die Zukunft der Stadt bringen und wie werden sich die Städte Europas verän-
dern? Werden sich Probleme, mit denen wir in unserer heutigen Zeit in den Städten konfrontiert sind – denkt an soziale Ungleichheit, benachteiligte Wohngebiete, Umweltbe-
lastung etc. – verstärken oder werden wir und zukünftige Generationen in der Lage sein, sie zu bewältigen?

Es ist unbestreitbar, dass die ökonomischen, ökologischen und sozialen Belastungen hoch sind und zukünftig sein werden. Den Konfliktpotentialen stehen jedoch positive Visionen von kreativen Städten, der grünen Stadt oder der Stadt der Toleranz und des sozialen Ausgleichs gegenüber.

Fragestellung des Wettbewerbs
Für uns ist interessant, wie ihr euch, als junge Generation, vor diesem thematischen Hintergrund eine lebenswerte und zukunftsfähige europäische Stadt vorstellt und welche Lösungsvorschläge ihr für die heutigen Probleme der Stadt habt. Glaubt ihr, dass speziell die europäische Stadt in der Lage ist, aktuelle Herausforderungen für ihre Zukunft aufzu-
nehmen, ohne dabei ihre Identität zu verlieren? Hat für euch die Stadt überhaupt eine Zukunft oder wird sie sich gar als mögliche Form des Zusammenlebens der Menschen auflösen?

Aufgabenstellung des Wettbewerbs
Eure Aufgabe ist die kreative und innovative Umsetzung und Präsentation eurer Ideen zur Zukunft der europäischen Stadt mittels künstlerischer Ausdrucksformen.

Berücksichtigt bei der Umsetzung aktuelle Probleme der Städte und findet möglichst ausgewogene Lösungsansätze, die unter anderem folgende Bereiche der Kultur einbeziehen und verbinden können: Kommunikation, Bildung, Wissenschaft, Sport, Kunst, Architektur, Stadtplanung, innerstädtisches Zusammenleben (Stadtsoziologie), Freizeitangebote, Technik, Ökologie, Versorgungssystem, Transit- und Transport-
system, Wirtschaft etc.
Realisiert eure Projekte mittels Grafik, Malerei, Skulptur, Fotografie, Film, Video, Internetkunst, Musik, Theater und/oder Tanz und bringt diese in eine digitale Form (als Bild, Grafik, Foto, Scan, Videoclip oder Sounddatei), damit ihr sie an unsere E-Mail-Adresse senden könnt.
Wenn Sprache in mündlicher oder schriftlicher Form innerhalb der Projektarbeit verwendet wird, muss sie Englisch oder Deutsch sein. Nicht zugelassen werden Beiträge, die aus einer reinen Textform bestehen, zum Beispiel Essays und Gedichte.

Seid kritisch, kreativ und denkt quer – bewegt eure Stadt!

Wir sind gespannt auf kreative Ideen, innovative Vorschläge, nachhaltige Konzepte sowie ansprechende und verständliche Darstellungen.

Teilnahmebedingungen
Teilnehmen können alle jungen Menschen im Alter von 15 bis 25 Jahren mit Hauptwohnsitz in einem Mitgliedsland des Europarates.
Ein Team darf aus maximal drei Teilnehmern bestehen.
Das eingereichte Projekt wurde bisher weder in der Presse veröffentlicht, noch bei anderen Wettbewerben oder Ausstellungen ausgezeichnet.

Kriterien der Jury
Die Juroren bewerten vor allem die Idee eurer Arbeit, nicht vordergründig die künstle-
rische Ausführung. Sie beurteilen eure Auseinandersetzung mit der Fragestellung, die Kreativität und Innovationskraft eurer Arbeit, bereichsübergreifendes Arbeiten (Interdisziplinarität) sowie die Form eurer Präsentation in dem von euch gewählten Medium.

Preise und Preisverleihung
Die Jury wählt Anfang Dezember 2008 die drei besten Arbeiten aus. Diese drei Teams gewinnen die Teilnahme am European Congress for a World Culture Forum in Dresden (26. Februar bis 1. März 2009) im Wert von 2000,– Euro pro Person. Inbegriffen sind ein dreitägiger Workshop vom 23. bis 25.

Die Bekanntgabe und Einladung der drei Gewinnerteams erfolgt bis zum 15. Dezember 2008.

Nach der Präsentation der drei prämierten Projektarbeiten auf dem europäischen Kongress 2009 wählt die Jury daraus die beste Arbeit. Das ausgewählte Team gewinnt wahlweise einen vierwöchigen Aufenthalt zum Erlernen der deutschen Sprache am Goethe-Institut Dresden oder einen französischen Sprachkurs an einem der deutschen Instituts Français.

Amicus - Call for proposals

Dear all,

Please find hereafter the link to the text of the call for proposals Amicus ("Preparatory Action") that has been published on the 1st of August 2008 in the OJ C195.

The application file and all relevant documents are available in English at the following link:
http://ec.europa. eu/youth/ calls-for- proposals/ call1131_ en.htm

Please note that the French and German versions of the Call for proposals, application form and applicant's Guide will soon be available on the website.

As discussed during the National Agencies meeting and Consultative Group, even if this call is taking place outside of the Youth in Action programme, we are all convinced that National Agencies should be involved. Actually, given the high experience and competence acquired by National Agencies in the field of mobility of young people, especially in volunteering activities, your support to this initiative is crucial.

As stated in the Call for proposals, the Amicus scheme includes one Activity ("Activity of type 3") of placements of young people to do transnational civic service or volunteering activities.

Since our EVS scheme is composed of very valuable quality elements, it inspired some of the features of the Amicus Activity of type 3.

Please note that the call is open to the 27 Member States. There is a maximum of 35 participants per project, and the maximum grant depends on the country of the applicant. There should be one project per country, but if funding remains available, there may be up to 3 projects per country.

Please advertise the Amicus call as much as possible, essentially to the potential applicants, who are civic service structures and NGOs with almost no experience in international mobility of young people.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any question about Amicus. The contact persons are: (1) Ms. Corinne Rigaud (corinne.rigaud@ ec.europa. eu - phone: +32.2.29.90. 523) and (2) myself (Peggy.GENEVE@ ec.europa. eu). Please note that in August, you may contact Stéphanie Frangou who is the backup during our holidays.

Thanking you again for your attention and wishing you a very nice summer.

Best regards,

Peggy Genève

Article 7 Insurance
Article 8 General obligations for the trainees
Article 9 Leave and sickness
Article 10 Suspension and termination of traineeship
Article 11 Status vis-à-vis the Communities
Article 12 Coming into force and transition period

Article 1 General provisions
The Ombudsman offers traineeships, twice a year, primarily to university law graduates. The traineeships take place either in Strasbourg or in Brussels according to the needs of the Office. They start on 1 September and 1 January each year.


Article 2 Aims of Traineeships
Traineeships are intended to enable the trainees to gain, in addition to the knowledge and skills they have acquired during their studies, a practical experience of the work of the European Ombudsman.

Trainees normally undertake either the investigation of complaints, or carry out research relevant to the work of the Ombudsman. They work under the direct supervision of a Legal Officer.


Article 3 Eligibility conditions
The applicant should normally:

Be a national from an EU Member State;
Have a university degree in law and be at an advanced stage of professional training, or research, in Community law;
Have a thorough knowledge of one of the official languages of the European Union and a good knowledge of a second. The main working languages of the European Ombudsman's office are English and French. Knowledge of both languages is therefore required.
The Ombudsman can derogate from these conditions if exceptional circumstances so determine.


Article 4 Duration
The traineeship has a minimum duration of four months. It can be extended for a period left to the Ombudsman's discretion normally up to a maximum of 12 months.


Article 5 Admission procedure
Using the form provided for that purpose, applications should be sent to the Office of the European Ombudsman, together with the following supporting documents:

A copy of the applicant's curriculum vitae;
A cover letter (preferably typed) explaining in English the reasons for applying for the traineeship;
Copy of diplomas, degrees, or certificates (publications could be requested at a later stage if required;
Copy of ID card/passport;
A financial declaration(1).
Candidates should apply either for the traineeship period starting on 1 September or the 1 January. Applications must be sent before 30 April for the traineeship period starting on 1 September and before 31 August for the traineeship period starting on 1 January of the following year.
An acknowledgement of receipt, which will have been filled in by the applicant at the time of applying, shall be sent to the applicant within a month.
Applicants shall be selected according to their merits, taking into account the interests of the service and the financial and logistical capacity of the Office to receive and accommodate trainees.
Applicants will be informed of the decision taken on their application before the end of July for the period starting on 1 September or before the end of November for the period starting on 1 January. Applicants who were not successful on their initial application may apply for another training period by submitting a new application.
The processing of personal data by the European Ombudsman is governed by Regulation (EC) N° 45/2001(2). By submitting an application for a traineeship, the applicant is understood, in the sense of Article 5 (d) of the Regulation, to have given his/her consent to the processing of the personal data contained in the application form and the supporting documents enclosed therewith. The provision of information requested in the application form and the supporting documents is obligatory. Incomplete applications will be excluded from the selection. The personal data in question is collected by the European Ombudsman's office for the sole purpose of the selection of trainees by its services. Applicants have a right to access and to rectify their own personal data kept by the Office of the European Ombudsman.
Personal data concerning unsuccessful applicants shall be destroyed six months after the beginning of the traineeship period for which it was collected. Applications handed in for a given traineeship period shall not be taken into consideration for future selections of trainees or for recruitment purposes.

Personal data concerning successful applicants shall be kept by the Ombudsman's office and might be transferred to other Community Institutions for administrative purposes.

The list of the names of trainees serving and having served in the Ombudsman's office is a public document.


Article 6 Financial arrangements
Scholarships

Trainees who do not receive a salary or other form of financial support receive a scholarship during the traineeship period.

The amount of a scholarship is 25% of the basic salary of staff on grade AD 6 (A*6 until 30 April 2006) step 1, plus the household allowance, where appropriate. This amount may be altered by decision of the European Ombudsman.

The level of financial support for trainees receiving external support will be determined on an individual basis. It will not normally exceed the difference, if any, between the amount of external support and the value of a scholarship.

Travel expenses incurred at the beginning and end of the traineeship

Trainees who are not entitled to claim travel expenses from any other source may claim reimbursement of the cost of travel within the territory of the European Union between their place of residence and Strasbourg/Brussels at the beginning and end of the traineeship, as follows:

second class rail fare by the most direct route, with couchette or T2 sleeping car if necessary;
economy class air fare if that is less expensive, or if the rail journey exceeds 500 km, or if the journey involves a sea crossing. The cost of air tickets shall be reimbursed only on presentation of supporting documents.
Possible reservations of transport tickets at the start and/or the end of the traineeship are made by the European Ombudsman's office. All other forms of reservations must be submitted to the Ombudsman's services for prior approval.

Travel expenses incurred during the traineeship

Trainees whom the Ombudsman requires to undertake a mission shall be entitled to reimbursement of their travel expenses (Article 12 of Annex VII of the Staff Regulations). They shall receive daily mission allowances which correspond to those laid down for group III in Article 13 (1) (a) of Annex VII to the Staff Regulations.


Article 7 Insurance
Trainees must be insured against sickness and accident by an insurance policy taken out for that purpose by the European Parliament with a private insurance company. The European Ombudsman pays the full costs of insurance.

At the request of the trainee, the European Parliament shall also insure his or her spouse and children against the risk of sickness and accident. In such cases, the trainee shall pay the insurance premiums in full.


Article 8 General obligations for the trainees
Trainees must undertake to observe:

the instructions of their superiors and of the Legal Officer under whose guidance they are placed;
established office hours;
the rules and procedures of the European Ombudsman, including those relating to public access to, and confidentiality of, documents.
Trainees must not have any professional connections with third parties that might be incompatible with their traineeship. They shall be required to respect the obligations of confidentiality imposed on the Ombudsman and his staff by the Statute of the European Ombudsman. They shall observe the utmost discretion with regard to facts and information that come to their knowledge during the traineeship. They shall remain bound by that obligation after the completion of their traineeship.
Trainees must contribute to the work of the service to which they are assigned. The European Ombudsman shall retain all rights to the research carried out during the traineeship.

Article 9 Leave and sickness
Trainees are entitled to two working days' leave for each month of the traineeship.

If absent as a result of sickness, the trainees must notify the Ombudsman's office immediately. Absences must be justified by a medical certificate.

In exceptional circumstances, trainees may address to the Head of the Administration and Finance Department applications for authorisation to be absent from work. Such applications may in particular be examined in the light of the special leave provisions applicable to the Ombudsman's officials. If an authorisation is granted, the procedures applicable to officials shall be applied by analogy.


Article 10 Suspension and termination of traineeship
Requests for suspension of a traineeship or for leave of absence will be granted in exceptional circumstances only, and in accordance with the interests of the service. The Ombudsman's decision is discretionary. During a period of suspension of a traineeship, scholarship payments will be suspended. Neither leave of absence nor suspension shall entitle the trainee to reimbursement of travel expenses under Article 6 above.

The Ombudsman may terminate the traineeship at any stage at the request of the trainee, or in cases in which performance is deemed to be unsatisfactory or in which the trainee has failed to observe the terms of the traineeship.


Article 11 Status vis-à-vis the Communities
The awarding of a traineeship shall under no circumstances confer on recipients the status of official or other servant of the European Union, nor shall it entitle them in any way to subsequent recruitment to any EU institution.


Article 12 Coming into force and transition period
This decision shall enter into force on 1 January 2007. It replaces the decision governing traineeships dated 16 June 2005.

Strasbourg, 20 November 2006



P. Nikiforos DIAMANDOUROS
