Dear future delegates,
From the 1st to the 4th of May 2015 the European Youth Parliament (EYP) Austria will be hosting its 16th National Selection Conference in Vienna, to which we kindly invite individual delegates from Austria and Europe. Delegates have to be at least 16 years old to participate.
At EYP sessions delegates will form committees, guided by chairpersons. These committees will participate in professionally planned team building activities and then discuss a challenging European topic. At the end of the session, participants will simulate parliamentary debates in General Assembly.
On the occasion of the 20-year anniversary of Austria’s accession to the EU, the session theme „One in Many, Many as One – Identity in an Integrated Europe“ will emphasise the diversity of individual, regional, national, religious and ethnic identities in Europe. Topics will revolve around these various forms of identity as well as the extent of a shared European identity in the context of the advancing process of European integration.
The session is being head-organised by Julia König (AT) & Maria Köpping (AT) and presided by Christian Macht (DE). They are joined by Jeroen de Marteau (BE) and Marek Navrátil (CZ) as the session Editors.
Please submit your application form by Thursday, 17th April 2015, 23:59 CET to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Organisers are glad to answer any questions at email@example.com.
