Would you like to attend the event in Brussels and teach the MEP’s a thing or two about coding?
We are looking for Mentors and Champions from all over Europe to bring young people from their Dojos to Brussels on 17th October. We are specifically looking for young people who are eager to Mentor or who already Mentor at their Dojo.
This is an opportunity for Ninjas to showcase the skills and creativity present in their Dojos to a very important audience of MEPs. We want the Ninjas, Champions and Mentors who attend EU Dojo to show MEPs just how cool coding is and how much fun you have doing it!

We are aiming to have an equal number of female and male ninjas attending EUDojo, so bear this in mind when selecting ninjas to attend. We will be contacting the Dojos who have completed the form in mid-September to confirm their attendance and guarantee their place. Filling in the form alone is not a guarantee of a place.
