EYP Austria x Pulse of Europe Austria HomeParliament | 22 May

We’re glad to announce an event organised in cooperation with Pulse of Europe Austria: a HomeParliament with Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) taking place on Saturday, 22 May 2021 from 17:00 to 20:00 CEST!*

The event will bring young Europeans together to discuss current euro-political issues in small groups of up to 8 people. After around an hour of discussion time, the individual committees  will be introduced to MEPs who are currently involved in the decision-making process at a European level. Through fostering an open floor and encouraging the youth to speak their mind we hope to create an exchange of ideas, values and visions for Europe between the politicians and the other attendees.

The event is taking place online and open to all interested individuals. You can register here as a participant until Friday, 21 May 2021, 23:59 CEST.

*We originally announced the event for 15 May, but this has since changed due to a short-notice guest unavailability.

General Assembly Update & Policy Amendment

It is our pleasure to announce that the General Assembly 2021, taking place online on Sunday, 20 June, from 13:00 CEST onwards, will have Patrick DeutschmannMatthias Klonner and Maria Köpping acting as the electoral commission (electoralcommission2021@eyp.at). Additionally, Elke Zöhrer and Tobias Gradenegger will be in charge of the GA minutes as secretaries. We want to already thank all of them for their engagement for the organisation in their roles!

In the same vein, we want to hereby inform you that to allow for a three-person electoral commission, the Board of EYP Austria had to amend the Policy on Elections, which previously required exactly two commissioners. This has now been changed to “at least two” commissioners, of which we want to hereby inform you in line with EYP Austria’s Policy procedure. During the upcoming General Assembly, this amendment will be up for debate and can be revoked again.

You can find all Policies of EYP Austria and the Policy procedure here in a dedicated folder on the EYP AT Drive.
