The meet!-Mercator Europa Tour is a project by Stiftung Mercator that aims to strengthen social diversity in the fields of international cooperation and international affairs. Each year, meet! invites young adults from the Ruhr area in Germany, who are the first in their family to graduate from high school or attend university, to experience Europe and to explore current international issues. Through in-depth trainings, cultural events and discussions meet! prepares and encourages them to engage in European affairs, to seek international career opportunities and to get involved in the world of intercultural exchange.
