Participation and all activities at EYE Brežice are free of charge and are ment for young people aged between 15 and 30 years. The number of places available for participation and overnight stays is limited, so register as soon as possible.
ATTENTION:
The EYE Brežice programme allows you to participate EITHER in cultural artistic colonies OR in core activities (Youth-to-Youth). Both will be held simultaneously at EYE Brežice until Saturday, 25 May, in the afternoon when they will merge into one activity with presentations of colony productions.

If you are interested in getting involved in the core activities, apply here:

Hey, you! 😊 Check out the PROGRAMME of EYE Brežice – here.

The programme will be continuously updated until the event itself, with your help. Check out what’s already scheduled.

CULTURECRACY

EXCLUSIVE!

Who says serious topics can’t be addressed in a COOL(tural) way?

That’s why at EYE Brežice 3-day cultural artistic colonies led by professional mentors will be carried out from 23 to 25 May 2024. Check out which.

 

YOUTH-TO-YOUTH

EYE Brežice is a youth event, so it makes perfect sense that also young people will be leading activities for and with other young people at the event. Use your voice and vote for your favourites!

The participatory voting ends on 21 April 2024.

EPs got this!

European Parliament is like, whatever.”

Shaking off the belief that “we can’t make a difference” is tough, isn’t it?

#ShakeItOff here

Unfortunately, the general lack of interest in political processes is common and not a new topic at all. We’ve decided to try to do something about that and make it at least a bit more acceptable. We even dare you to eventually change the gear to active participation. Crazy, huh? 😉 In the time leading up to the election of MEPs, which will take place from 6 to 9 June 2024, we’re respectfully and gently inviting you to follow the facts about the EP, and then use your voice in the elections.

    #SaveTheDate: 23–26 May 2024

    How do I get to Brežice (English translation: Brezice)?

    We want EYE Brežice to leave the tiniest environmental and carbon footprint as possible, so we gently encourage you to decide to act sustainably. NOTE: Public transport infrastructure in Slovenia can sometimes be… ehm … let’s call it mission impossible or a looong-lasting relationship. 😉 But still, if possible, give it a chance.

    Brežice is easily accessible by train from Ljubljana and Zagreb. You can find the train schedule here.

    The city also has a good bus connection. A regional bus to Ljubljana runs regularly. You can find the bus schedule here.

    City buses are available for transportation within and outside the city. You can find the city bus schedule here.

    The facilities where EYE Brežice activities will take place are mostly located at Institute for Entrepreneurship, Tourism and Youth Brežice – Gubčeva ulica 10a, 8250 Brežice, Slovenia (English translation: Gubceva street 10a, 8250 Brezice). Additional venues (Brežice Castle, Town Hall of Brežice, Faculty of Tourism Brežice, Brežice Library) are very close, no more than a good 10 minutes’ walk (depending on your pace) and easily accessible.

    How will participants with disabilities and challenges be taken care of?

    EYE Brežice is about including everyone, taking in consideration potential personal circumstances that may be a challenge for an individual. To ensure equal participation and inclusion in EYE Brežice activities, we will provide the following:

    • access for persons with mobility impairments or wheelchair users;
    • portable hearing loop;
    • translation into English;
    • adaptations for dietary preferences and needs;
    • 100% coverage of accommodation costs for 200 persons and meal costs for all EYE Brežice participants;
    • free participation in cultural artistic colonies;
    • partial coverage of travel expenses to and from Brežice (English translation: Brezice) for organised participation within an association, institute, institution, youth council or other legal organisational form (by prior arrangement and available funds);
    • zero tolerance for discrimination, hate, violence and exclusion.

    If the given measures don’t address a certain personal obstacle(s) and/or challenge(s), please contact us so we can try to address it.

    info@mreza-mama.si; +38630 618 628

    Which participation costs are covered?

    “If it’s free, it’s probably lame.” This is not always the case and definitely not for EYE Brežice. 💪 We will do our best to make sure the access to the event’s activities is ensured for everyone, so the following costs will be covered:

    • 100% of accommodation costs for 200 individuals and meal costs for all EYE Brežice participants;
    • free participation in mentor-led cultural artistic colonies;
    • partial coverage of travel expenses to and from Brežice (English translation: Brezice) for organised groups coming as part of an association, institute, institution, youth council or other legal-organisational form (by prior arrangement and available funds);
    • concerts with free admission;
    • free participation in all activities at EYE Brežice.

     

    What about accommodation and meals?

    The accommodation costs will be fully covered for 200 participants of EYE Brežice. Accommodation facilities will be available in Brežice (Hostel Brežice – accommodation in multi-bed rooms) and Čatež ob Savi (Hotel Čatež – accommodation in double rooms). Due to limited funds and EYE Brežice venues’ limitations, the number of available accommodations is limited, so hurry up and register via the form – here. If you choose to stay overnight, we’ll treat you to breakfast and, upon prior arrangement, dinner as well.

    We will provide lunch, snacks and refreshments for all EYE Brežice participants (including those not staying overnight) during the two daily breaks between EYE Brežice activities, along with dinner upon prior arrangement. As part of the registration process for EYE Brežice, you will be able to provide information regarding any dietary preferences or restrictions.

    Because we want EYE Brežice to leave as small carbon and environmental footprint as possible, we gently encourage you to be mindful of your use of food and water, waste sorting and other sustainable choices. We invite you to bring your water bottle and drink tap water at the event. Water quality in Slovenia is one of the best in Europe. Maybe also in the world!! 😊

    In which language will the activities take place?

    The primary language of communication at EYE Brežice will be Slovenian. Spoken Slovenian will also be supported by interpretation into Slovenian sign language. The opening and closing ceremonies will be simultaneously translated into English. Cultural artistic colonies will be carried out in English if participants from other countries take part in them. Other activities at EYE Brežice will be carried out in Slovenian, and upon prior agreement, we will do our best to provide translation into English. We invite you to state all your needs and desires through registration to maximize your involvement. We will do our best to support you. Pinky promise!

    How will environmental protection and natural resource conservation be ensured at the event?

    EYE Brežice will be an opportunity to reflect on and test how each of us can leave the smallest possible carbon and environmental footprint while organising and participating in various activities. In doing so, we reject any greenwashing and encourage all participants to think and act independently towards sustainable environmental decisions. Measures used at EYE Brežice include:

    • minimizing printed materials and maximizing digital versions of materials;
    • Institute for Entrepreneurship, Tourism and Youth Brežice recognizes that sustainable development is a long-term engagement that enables healthy and sustainable development in the future. With certifications such as the Green Key for the YC Club Brežice, International Quality and Sustainability (HI-Q & S) for YC Hostel Brežice, and Zero Waste for events, they have become part of the Slovenian green tourism scheme;
    • using ceramic plates and glassware where possible;
    • rational consumption of food and tap water;
    • waste sorting;
    • young green guardians who will subtly encourage participants to make more sustainable decisions through peer-to-peer informing;
    • selection of food vendors offering sustainable packaging and using locally sourced food, thereby supporting local producers and shortening supply chains;
    • promoting the use of sustainable forms of mobility for arrival, departure and while staying in Brežice.

    How will my safety, health and inclusion be ensured at the event?

    EYE Brežice is accessible to all young people regardless of any personal circumstances (religious beliefs, gender, disability, health issues, learning difficulties, nationality, ethnicity, economic status, political or sexual orientation, etc.). Constructive dialogue, seeking and implementing measures for greater inclusion of different individuals, zero tolerance for any form of hatred, violence and discrimination are the foundations of the event. We will strive to make the EYE Brežice experience as pleasant, educational and inclusive as possible for everyone.

    We also count on you to contribute your part to the culture of acceptance. #WeGotThis

    The main venue of EYE Brežice will be the Institute for Entrepreneurship, Tourism and Youth Brežice, because like all other youth centres in Slovenia, it is an open, safe civic space that is mindful to include all young people, regardless of their personal circumstances. Their facilities are also accessible to people with disabilities and they hold the Quality Label for Youth Centres certificate awarded by the Council of Europe. It therefore places a special emphasis on promoting the values, approaches and standards of the Council of Europe through education on human rights. Only 15 youth centres in Europe boast this label and the Institute for Entrepreneurship, Tourism and Youth Brežice is the only one in Slovenia.

    If anyone needs medical assistance, the Brežice General Hospital is only 1 km away from the Institute for Entrepreneurship, Tourism and Youth Brežice, and it is available 24/7.

    There are two pharmacies in Brežice located at Trdinova ulica 1 and Černerlčeva cesta 8.

    Professional security services will ensure safety at the concert evenings, while the field team from the association DrogArt will be responsible for internal safety and health of every individual. #StaySafe

    Who organises EYE Brežice?

    The Youth Network MaMa is a national network organisation that brings together 55 youth centres from all over Slovenia. It works towards qualitative youth work, organises trainings for youth workers, encourages active citizenship and participation and helps build a society of healthy relationships. Through the national web portal mlad.si, which is managed by MaMa, it informs Slovenian young people and organisations in the youth field (youth centres, youth organisations, youth councils, etc.) about opportunities, results, effects of youth work and current youth-related topics.
