Others on EYP

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.

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. 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.

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.
