What is Chase?

Chase is an urban community with hundreds of young social storytellers working for a digital-first audience. They create stories tailored to the online community in 4 themes: urban music, lifestyle, creatives and society. Visit their website or Facebook page to know more.

Why did we team up?

It's simple: Chase has young storytellers, and Eurodesk has great stories. Both network believes in the power of societal change at the level of local communities, so why not team up to spread the word about inspiring stories to the people of internet? Chase's stories are always created by young people, for young people and with social media shareability in mind. This is a match made in heaven!

How does this work?


APPLICATION

Find the application form on the bottom of this page. The deadline to apply is 31 January 2019.


SELECTION

After the deadline ends, Chase and Eurodesk Brussels Link will select the projects that will be covered by young storytellers.


ENCOUNTER

Storytellers travel to the locations of the winning proposals. National coordinators cover all costs for them. Hosting Multipliers / National Coordinators welcome the storytellers, show them around, involve them in their work.


PROMOTION

After and during the visit, storytellers work on the report and media materials of the stories. Once finished, the stories are shared on various channels.

Your organisation will be mentioned in the story so it is an amazing opportunity to highlight your work at European level. Chase will post about it on their website and social media pages; Eurodesk Brussels Link will post about it on its website, social media pages and the European Youth Portal. Of course you will be free to share the story on your channels, too. The work with a young storyteller will equip you with knowledge about how to effectively cover your events on social media. So much to gain and nothing to lose!
