An international project for young people | European Voluntary Service, Youth exchanges, Camps
Living in another country is one of those things in life that everyone should do at least once, as David Sadaris said, “my understanding is that it completes a person, sanding down the rough provincial edges and transforming you into a citizen of the world”. We are all part of the world we live in and because of it exploring and discovering is one of the greatest things in life.
Citizens of Europe is created by OKO organisation from Czech Republic as an international project whose goal is to open people’s eyes. To share, to inspire, to motivate and to show people all the wonderful experiences that living in another country could provide.
Under OKO-Europe website you will have access to many living-abroad related information. We provide information about Erasmus+ programs; such as Camps, youth exchanges and EVS (European Volunteering Service).
All the information you need to expand your borders, to be limitless to explore and to live unforgettable experiences. From the Project; ex-volunteers experiences and “Meeting Europe”, a real event in a local community, to what is EVS, what it means to do a volunteering service and how to apply for it, and also information about Camps and youth exchanges.
Citizens of Europe is an online window to a world of possibilities that are waiting for you to discover. As international organisation, we want to help you in the process. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding any of the programs, we will be here to help you.
Welcome, citizen of Europe.
