EYP Day Villach 2012
This year‘s round of the Austrian EYP Days was concluded by yet another great session on Friday, the 3rd of February at the BG/BRG St. Martin in Villach. Around 40 delegates from Austria and Germany were introduced to EYP and the usual components of an EYP session. Together with their international chairs, presided by Franziska Maier (DE), the delegates moved from Teambuilding to Committee Work until they arrived at the General Assembly, where lively discussions about current political issues were engaged in.
Furthermore, the mayor of Villach, Helmut Manzenreiter, showed his enthusiasm for European topics and the EYP by holding a speech during the session‘s opening ceremony and answering political questions of the participants.
All these and many more memorable moments of this session were captured by the ORF and the session press team, which has composed a session paper.
Motivated by the success of the EYP days in Vienna, Graz and Villach the EYP Austria is eager to keep on giving young people from all over Europe more opportunities to participate in such events.
