  • Your trip from home to the starting point of the routes and back from the final stop to your location will be covered under certain conditions.
  • Health insurance will NOT be provided by the project team, but it is mandatory to have an international health insurance for the period 1st March – 19th April 2019.
  • Visa fees will NOT be provided, but we will provide the ambassadors with invitation letters and try to lower the costs.
  • Pocket money (for personal expenses) is not included. Our experience from previous Europe on Track editions indicates that about 200€ pocket money will enable travelling ambassadors to realize the project in a fun and effective manner, although it may be less depending on your personal spending habits.
The training, the route and the final conference are planned from March 1th (Moscow, Russia) until April 19th (Leiden, Netherlands). The commitment to the role of the ambassador also continues after the route, until every material has been published and closing conference has finished.
