Dear Teachers or future Delegates,
From 16th to 18th of January 2014, 100 people from different parts of Europe will gather in the city of Melk to take part in the very 1st Regional Session of EYP Austria.
The session will host delegations from three Austrian regions as well as an international delegation and international individual delegates who will be split into different groups, each one discussing a politically vibrant topic. These groups will be guided by experienced EYP members from all over Europe, making sure that the respective academic goals are achieved and fun is not missing out.
There will not be a session theme, however, participants are encouraged to get in touch with our organisation and experience the very special session spirit. We would like to provide participants with the opportunity to actively live out democracy by raising their voices on divisive issues.
Melk 2014 is the perfect opportunity for students with political interest to experience their first insight into the European Youth Parliament.
We are now looking for 18 school Delegations, each consisting out of 4 students aged 16-19, as well as a couple of Austrian and international Individual Delegates that will take part actively in order to represent their school or country. Please find attached the application form which needs to be returned as a PDF file to
firstname.lastname@example.org by December 16th 2013, 23:59 CET, as well as the official programme of the session, an Info sheet and a selection guide for teachers. Furthermore there will be a participation fee over 10 € per student.
We are very much looking forward to your applications!
The organising team of Melk 2014
