2.Invitation to FREE sports and dance events for all Romanians in London
You and all your friends are invited to 'Get Started with MoneyGram and
Sportsmatch' events, which are FREE sports and dance evenings held every
Saturday from 6.30pm to 9.00pm. These events are held either at SPACE
Leisure Centre, Shoreditch (North London) or FUSION Leisure Centre,
Elephant & Castle (South London) and will run until July 2004.
You are invited to all the events but once a month, at SPACE Leisure
Centre, Shoreditch, we hold an event dedicated to Romanians where we
will have Salsa classes, football, basketball, table tennis and
generally lots of fun for everyone. If you have a group of Romanians
and would like to hold an event then this is the place to do it.
As well as sport and dance, the evening offers you the chance to meet
new friends from the Romanian community as well as other communities in
London. At the event, we also have information on how and where to
learn English, how to find a job and how to safely send money to your
family back home through MoneyGram.
Many Romanians have visited the events each week over the last couple of
months and love the opportunity to play sport and meet fellow Romanians
in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. "I have been to many of the Get
Started events and have really enjoyed them. I am now very much looking
forward to getting involved in playing in the new football league that
has recently been set up and playing against other Romanians and other
nationalities who are now coming along to all the events" said Liviu
from the Romanian Church in London. If you want to be a part of a team
for the football league or have a group of friends to make up a team,
please come on down to the event and compete for free.
This new, unique and exciting initiative was launched on 23 September
2003 by the British Minister of Sport, Richard Caborn who has given the
programme his support. The aim is to leverage the universal appeal of
sport to help people new to the UK to live, work and successfully settle
and integrate in their local communities.
We very much look forward to seeing you and all your friends at the 'Get
Started' events soon.

Letter to lobby your government on the EU Constitution
By Florent Sebban, Eurostep, Brussels
The Inter Governmental Conference (IGC) started on 4 October 2003 to
adopt a Constitutional Treaty for the European Union.
The first phase of this process was the negotiation of a Draft
Constitutional Treaty by the Convention on the Future of Europe. Development
Cooperation and Humanitarian Aid were already then in danger of being
subordinated to the objectives of the Unions foreign policy, security and
defence interests. NGOs were able to follow the debate and influence
the Convention to improve the legal base for Development Cooperation and
The recently started IGC will negotiate an agreed Constitutional Treaty
on the basis of the Convention’s proposals. However, this time the
debate is not open to the public. NGOs do not have access to the documents
and are not able to follow in how far the Convention’s outcome is
touched and changed.
Please send the attached letter to your Foreign Affairs minister to
lobby on the development section within the Constitution.

My last Full time job was working as the Content Manager of a European B2B website in Paris.

The aim of my third year is to spend time in a Spanish speaking country and learn Spanish fluently through immersion in the culture. I am therefore trying to arrange a placement and would be interested in any opportunities you may have for someone with my skills. I am bilingual in French and currently have an intermediate level of both written and spoken Spanish which I aim to improve over the year to come.
