GoEuro mission is to improve access to all towns and cities across the continent, making travel easier, whether it be by train, bus or plane. Traditionally, figuring out how to get to destinations without airports has been a complicated process, particularly in foreign countries. It’s important that travellers don’t miss out on discovering fantastic cities like Bath, Segovia, Soest or Namur, which is why they are determined to help you find the best ways to get there.
Use the title ‘’A Closer Europe’’ and let it inspire you. Send your innovative vision of a more connected Europe. They are flexible with the entry formats, so be creative! Share your vision in an essay, blog post, video, YouTube clip…or whichever format you feel best expresses your ideas. The focus of the entry is up to you whether it’s transport, culture, education or any other theme...they want to know what a connected Europe means to you. Tell how your education and experience could help build a more connected Europe. Check out the scholarship blog post if you need some inspiration for your project.
