Others on EYP

The European Youth Parliament is of remarkable value as a platform to foster political engagement among European youth.

The participation of young people is like the sun for a tree, indispensable in a strong Europe. Be a part of EYP. Your future, your Europe!

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. I advise all secondary and vocational schools to join the EYP programme and take part in their activities.

Young, highly committed people in intercultural cooperation. That is politics, society and economy – lived in a refreshing way. I was impressed by the energy and the positive approach to quite complex topics. Thank you for the inspiring exchange!

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 is the perfect combination of fun and learning, challenge and safety, individual development and collaboration. A youth organisation for the future of Europe.
