About CUBE. Your Take on Europe

Europe is changing, but the political landscape is standing still. Young people are not adequately represented at the European level. We are a social start-up aiming to create an inclusive participation channel for young people in Europe. CUBE wants all young people in Europe to imagine the future they want to live in and wishes to bring fresh, young, and more diverse voices to European civil society and politics. Through our inclusive approach, we aim to break away from the elitist setting of most conferences, citizen dialogues, and workshops. To that end we train youth to give CUBE self-designed workshops, give workshops ourselves and gather and analyse the ideas and results of those workshops and advocate for them at the EU institutions in Brussels.

Hoe te solliciteren

If you’re interested in the position, please send your application including motivational letter and CV to Lisa Hermanns ( until March 29, 2020.

Personal interviews will be held in Maastricht between April 8 and April 15, 2020.
