EYP Mini Session Villach

In December Members of the European Youth Parliament (EYP) met at the BG/BRG St. Martin in Villach to participate in a EYP Mini Session and give students an understanding of EYP.

This was the third Mini Session of the Academic Year 2017/18 and it was head-organised by Thomas Micheler (AT) and Sarah Lee Schuster (AT), who both are also currently organising the Regional Session Villach 2018.

The president, who lead the participants through this day, was Ferdinand Mayerhofer (AT) a spirited EYP Member who already participated at many EYP Sessions in the past.

After Teambuilding games the Delegates gathered in different Committees to discuss current European topics. The results of these discussions were presented in the plenum.  In the subsequent Q&A rounds, delegates from other committees were able to follow up and question the solutions.

The Session was ended with a presentation of the work in EYP and the European anthem. We hope to see many of the delegates at the Regional Session Villach 2018 again!

EYP Mini Session Kufstein

 

The second Mini Session of this year took place at the HLW Kufstein in Kufstein.

Once again it was the goal to give students a first impression of the work which takes place in the European Youth Parliament by putting on the main parts of an EYP session, namely Teambuilding, Committee Work and General Assembly.

The day started of with a short general Team Building in which the 9 Officials introduced themselves to the 30 delegates. The Delegates were separated into smaller groups which discussed interesting topics like for example quotas of women in leading positions.

Afterwards the outcomes of these discussions were presented in the General Assembly, which was moderated by the president of the Session Sophia Simmill. The presentations were followed by rounds of Questions and Answers after which Mrs Simmill closed the Session with the European Anthem and a talk including further information about EYP.

This successful Session was made possible by the efforts of the Head Organiser Ali Nourouzi and his team. We hope to see many of the Delegates return to EYP at one of the upcoming Regional Sessions.

EYP Mini Session Wiener Neustadt

On 22nd November members of the European Youth Parliament (EYP) from all over Austria met in the Babenbergerring Gymnasium to give students of the town of Wiener Neustadt an understanding of EYP.

The day started at seven o’clock with the General Teambuilding in the school’s gymnasium, where the president of the session, Michael Ernst, welcomed all the delegates.

After a quick division into committees, the teambuilding continued in those smaller groups. Shortly after, the chairpersons had to proceed with committee work in order to discuss, understand and solve current problems of the EU with their delegates.

In a relaxing lunch break, which was sweetened by Weltladen, the students had time to prepare for the last major agenda of the day: the General Assembly.

The four committees were now given the opportunity to present their topics with its problems and possible solutions, which they had discussed in the last hours. In the subsequent Q&A rounds, delegates from other committees were able to follow up and question the solutions. After two hours of lively discussions, the session was closed with the European Anthem.
