Call for Socialisings

The ESC Team, with Tobias in charge of Socialising matters, is again calling for Socialisings! From now on, we will be doing monthly Socialising Calls, which will be opened at the beginning of every month. Currently, we are specifically looking for online events that should take place any day from now to roughly the beginning/middle of May.

Organising a Socialising is very simple, especially in the online format, which is why we want to encourage our members to try it themselves. You simply need an idea for an activity, a date and a time, and you’re good to go! For further guidance, the ESC Team has also created a Socialising Guide that you can use as a point of reference.

Unlike other calls in EYP, there will be no selection. Instead, we will approach everyone who reaches out to us immediately! You can submit your Socialising ideas until this Sunday, 18 April, using this form.

For further information, you can contact Tobias (tobias.gradenegger@eyp.at), who is responsible for Socialisings.

Youth Poll on the Future of Europe

Representing the first major activity of the international EYP project “Youth Opinions on the Future of Europe” with the support of the European Parliament, we would like to share the EYP Office’s Youth Poll on the Future of Europe with you! 

The goal of the poll is to reach as many young people as possible, gather their thoughts on the relevance and importance of certain topics, and get insights into their stance on some of the most important political and topical discussions in Europe going forward. It should take you around 15 min to fill out the poll, which we believe is well worth the time for such an exciting cause!

PBM#5 Report

In the middle of March, the Board of EYP Austria had its fifth online “Physical” Board Meeting (PBM), during which it discussed important matters regarding the organisation, with Advisory Board Members also attending.

As with all PBMs, a report has been compiled to inform our Members of the subjects talked about there, as well as the results of modules that will have a concrete impact on the organisation. So make sure to check out the report of PBM#5 to get an insight into the happenings of the Board and EYP Austria at large! Most notably the Board talked about potential changes to the structure of the Board regarding responsibilities and tasks associated with portfolios, how it wants to handle the transition to the next Board periodpriorities within the new National Strategy for the remainder of the current Board period, and ways to better incorporate communicate and cooperate with schools and students (Delegates).
