StatelessKids Youth Congress in Brussels

Deadline: 15 May 2016
Open to: active participants who are motivated to help end childhood statelessness
Venue: 11 – 13 of July,  Maastricht University Campus in Brussels


ENS advocates that none of Europe’s children should be stateless. Currently thousands of children born in Europe are growing up without the protection or sense of belonging which a nationality bestows. ENS is running a region-wide campaign StatelessKids to raise awareness and promote measures to ensure that children can realise their right to a nationality. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from leading experts and academics, UN agencies and Members of the European Parliament on the issue, as well as journalists, advocacy and communications experts on how to advocate for change.


  • Active participants who are motivated to help end childhood statelessness;
  • Group of 35 selected young delegates (aged 18 to 28) to hear about the effects of statelessness and participate in trainings.


  • ENS will offer a limited number of travel bursaries to help participants cover travel expenses to Brussels and will provide accommodation for all participants at a Youth Hostel close to the Maastricht University Campus in Brussels;
  • You will be able to indicate if you need assistance with travel costs through the online form;
  • Also, make sure to check with your University if they have a dedicated fund to cover travel expenses for students attending seminars.
