European Fellowship programmes are an original format at GEYC through which our GEYC Community members develop their skills in a priority field by combining learning, exploring, and doing. During their fellowship they have the chance to get directly involved in GEYC's activities and to put their knowledge into practice.

The European Fellowship on Human Rights (EFHR) is taking place under the framework of the Europe for Citizens project “50+30: From WW2 to the end of communism” and it aims to raise awareness about the human rights importance through nonformal education methods and remembrance of the past.
