The European Youth Parliament has been a forum for discussion and reflection for European youth on European policies for more than 20 years. In this way, they contribute to building tomorrow’s Europe. I wish them all continued success.

I consider the EYP an ideal instrument for enhancing pan-European political education that at the same time provides language training and the development of knowledge and skills. As a counsellor for EU and Internationalisation at the local school authority in Styria, I advise all upper secondary schools in general and vocational education including vocational schools for apprentices to join the EYP programme and take part in their activities.

EYP doesn’t only mean getting new friends wherever you go, but also constantly being challenged to become better in every way. Apart from that, it means trying to find out what being European really means.

EYP Mini Session Graz BG/BRG Seebacher

15 Jul 2018

On the 15th of June EYP Austria organised one of its Mini Sessions at the BG/BRG Seebacher in Graz. Here is what the Head-Organisers Lisa Fuchsberger, Annika Aichholzer and Magdalena Gautsch have to say about the Event:

The more the better! The latest Mini-Session was held again in Graz at the BG/BRG Seebacher. Organised by three students who all attend the aforementioned school, the idea and vision behind EYP was brought closer to students by discussing, critical thinking and finally presenting the problems and ideas the comitees have come up with. During those five hours, students were able to expand their rhetorical skills and dive into the world of EYP. In addition, We’d dare to say that all the officials had a great time and training. In conclusion: Session = success!

EYP Mini Session Eisenstadt

7 Jun 2018

Als früh morgens die Türen aufgingen, war die Registrierung schon bereit, alle Schüler zu empfangen, die sich an diesem Tag dem Abenteuer „EYP“ stellen wollten. Der Tag wurde mit ein paar tollen Teambuilding Aktivitäten eröffnet und natürlich wurden auch alle „Officials“ vorgestellt. Die Delegierten haben sich anschließend in ihre Komitees aufgeteilt und danach wurde angefangen zu diskutieren und entsprechende Lösungen zu den gefundenen Problemen auszuarbeiten. Es war für die meisten Delegierten das erste Mal, dass sie in dieser Weise arbeiteten, somit war eine gewisse Anpassung notwendig, aber das war bald geschafft. Zur Mittagspause hin waren dann die meisten Komitees fertig mit deren Präsentationsteilen um danach auf der “General Assembly” ihre Arbeiten zu präsentieren und zu verteidigen. Nach ein paar sehr angeregten Diskussionen auf der GA waren die Delegierten fertig mit ihrer Arbeit und traten die Heimreise an.
