The Forum of European Journalism Students organises several different events in different cities all over Europe.  All filled with workshops, lectures, meetings and of course parties !

Annual Congress

The Annual Congress is the main event of the Forum for European Journalism Students. It takes place every year in spring (usually April/May) in a different European city and is based around a specific topic. Around 100 journalism students and young journalists from all over Europe are attending this event to participate in workshops, lectures and discussions. A unique chance to improve your jornalistic skills and to meet lot of new fellows from different countries.

General Assembly

The General Assembly is with around 50 participants the second largest event of the Forum for European Journalism Students. It takes place every year in autumn in a different European city.  The main goal of the General Assembly is to discuss internal issues of the organisation and it’s future,  to prepare upcoming events and to elect the main bodies (Secretariat, Executive Board).


Labs & Task Force Meetings

From  time to time Forum for European Journalism Students organises also smaller Events with usually 10-20 participants like Labs and Task Force Meetings. Labs  focus on practical journalistic work  (TV Labs, Photojournalism Lab, etc.) while Task Force Meetings are usually organised by the Executive Board and are dedicated to a specific topic concerning the organisation.
