National Safe Person

As we are going through all incumbents of unelected positions of EYP Austria, we would also like to use this chance to re-introduce EYP Austria’s National Safe Person Schila Labitsch (

As the EYP, we are determined to ensure our organisation constantly improves as a safe and welcoming environment for all! In this spirit, all 40 NCs in the network have for a while now put in place a robust system and policy to ensure the welfare of all those who step in our events. 

Schila has been in EYP for 5 years, and currently serves as an independent point person who you can get in touch with if you experience any incident that you feel impacted your welfare in EYP, or if you would like to know more about existing policies and resources. 

Additionally, our multi-day events always have Event Safe Persons, and you can also decide to submit a complaint about harmful behaviour at, which will be dealt with as confidentially as possible. 

Feel free to email or message Schila if you have further questions!
