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. 

That is why we are thrilled to introduce to you EYP Austria’s new National Safe Person – Schila Labitsch ( She has been in EYP for 4 years, and now will serve 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 events will continue to 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!

Lastly, we would also like to thank Nina Thomic for fulfilling the role of National Safe Person from 2019 to 2020 and her dedication to safety and welfare in EYP Austria!
