The Charter of European Rural Communities is searching for a new member of the Youth Co-ordination team to join the current members – Adrija Kindzule (Latvia) and Joshua Henning (Germany).


The Youth Co-ordination Team is the body within the Charter that presides over all the activities aimed at youngsters, and it is also in charge of all the connected administrative work. The YCT members help prepare the meetings and the workshops, generate meeting agendas and project timelines, and identify milestones. The team can consist of at least two to at most four members aged 18 to 30. Members are elected to office by the Presidium for a term of two years with the possibility of a re-election.


Candidate has to be a young person between 18 and 30 years of age coming from one of the member villages or municipalities of the Charter of European Rural Communities (this excludes Kandava and Hepstedt as the two remaining team members are their representatives). Candidate is not required to live there at the moment. Candidate should preferably have some Charter-related experience gained either through taking part in one of the former Charter meetings or through organising one in their own municipality.
