What is EuCo?
EuCo stands for European Conference and is the biggest European and international Rotaract event during the Rotary year. It gathers around 1.000 guests from all around Europe and beyond. During the five days of the Convention, visitors have an opportunity to meet fellow Rotaractors, exchange ideas and attend conference sessions and theme workshops.
Who is organizing the EuCo in 2019?
The 2019 edition of the EuCo is organized by HOC (Host Organising Committee), a team of enthusiastic Rotaractors from Serbia. It was nominated by the assembly of E.R.I.C. (European Rotaract Information Centre) Country Representatives on the 6th of April 2018 during the EuCo in Antwerp, Belgium.
Who is E.R.I.C.?
The European Rotaract Information Centre was the first Multi-District Information Organisation (M.D.I.O.) worldwide. It aims to CONNECT European Rotaractors in order for them to LEARN from each other so that we can IMPACT our communities. Today E.R.I.C. supports approximately 136 Districts in 46 countries reaching over 20.000 Rotaracters in Europe. For more information check our website www.rotaracteurope.eu.
