Background. Where would you go if you received a free one-month train ticket anywhere in Europe? The idea was launched by the European Parliament in 2016. What if the European Union, offered every 18-year-old European an Interrail ticket, allowing them for three weeks to discover daily life across Europe?

This idea is now becoming a reality. This summer, 15,000 18-year-olds have the chance to receive a pass to discover up to 28 countries in Europe. Initially, when the idea arose to give away free Interrail tickets to young people in order for them to discover the beauties of the continent, many thought the idea was crazy and questioned its feasibility. Now the EU have taken this first step. But it’s only the beginning, and they must take it further.

To participate, the young candidates must be 18 on 1 July 2018 and complete a form. Applications open in June 2018.
