What is DiscoverEU?
Connecting young people with Europe
DiscoverEU is an EU initiative offering young people the opportunity to travel Europe. The aim is to help Europe’s youth connect with the European identity and raise awareness of the core values of the European Union through travel.
What is DiscoverEU?
Discover EU is an initiative of the European Union which offers young Europeans the opportunity to travel across Europe by train. Funded by the European Parliament, the project aims at supporting 18-year-olds to become more independent, develop soft skills and embrace European values.
How does it work?
In general there are 2 rounds per year, each consisting of an equal amount of travellers. Participants must travel by train over a period of 5 to 6 months each round. Awarded travellers are offered the choice between a flexible and a fixed travel option. Over 95% of the participants opt for the flexible option, that is the Interrail Global Pass.
DiscoverEU boosts the ideal of European integration while promoting rail as a climate-friendly mode of transport connecting people across Europe, values that are shared by Eurail.
