On the 7th of March another of EYP Austria’s Mini Sessions took place in the beautiful city of Vienna at the BORG Lessinggasse, gathering students from 4 different schools.
The aim was to give young people an insight in the work of the EYP and an opportunity to discuss their opinions and views.
After a short opening held by the president of the session, Ricarda Pfingstl, the delegates were split into their respective committees to continue with Teambuilding. The day proceeded with Committee Work, in which the students discussed current topics, such as same-sex marriage or voting ages in Europe.
The results of the discussions were later on presented during the General Assembly, where all the committees gathered. In the following debates the delegates were able to ask questions about the solutions presented.
After a round of lively discussions the session was concluded with a short introduction of the work of the European Youth Parliament. We hope to see many of the delegates at our upcoming National Selection Conference, taking place in Salzburg.
The Mini Session Vienna was head-organised by Fiona Rechberg with the support of Theodora Steiner.
