About Cafébabel Brussels
Cafébabel is an online participative magazine available in six languages that gives the Eurogeneration the opportunity to contribute to emerging European public opinion. Its philosophy is to encourage pan-European debate through both its editorial and current events activities. To do this, Cafébabel can count on 28 local teams throughout Europe.
After more than 11 years in Brussels continously covering Belgian and European news and events and organising numerous public debates, our local editorial board is now fully involved in the European capital. This entirely volunteer team is made up of young professionals working in European affairs, journalism or translation. The intern will work under the Bureau's direction.
