What is going on in Brussels, Luxembourg and Strasbourg? Interested in Europe, the EU and the Council of Europe? Want to Learn More?
The QCEA Study Tour provides a perfect opportunity to learn, discuss and reflect on what Europe, the European Union and the Council of Europe mean to you.
The Study Tour is held either in the spring or the summer almost every year at Quaker House in Brussels. Participants visited various European Institutions in Brussels and meet with MEPs, officials of the Council of the European Union, the European Commission, the Council of Europe and NGOs.
The Study Tour programme usually includes a trip to another city that hosts European institutions. You can see an indicative programme for a typical tour in either of these two locations – Luxembourg or Strasbourg.
QCEA has produced a report on the 2012 Study Tour [click here to view].
The Study Tour is open to Quakers and those in sympathy with the Religious Society of Friends. There is no upper age limit for the Tour and, assuming you feel you can handle a fair amount of walking, we welcome people of all ages! However, please note that all participants must be at least 18 years old by the start of the Study Tour.
How to apply
The next Study Tour will be in spring 2014, probably during the month of April. Half of the places available will be for young adults (up to about the age of 30), and half are reserved for those a little less young. We are currently accepting pre-registrations! Let us know if you hope to participate by e-mailing us at office @ qcea.org.
