National Session Vienna Update

After reviewing the current COVID-19 situation in regard to vaccine plans and COVID-19 regulations for schools, the Board of EYP Austria, together with the Head-Organiser Marvin Huber, have decided to move our upcoming National Session Vienna (28 to 31 May 2021) online, with the option of some hybrid aspects. Ideally, we would have liked to return to the typical session format for our flagship event of the year, but in light of recent developments we are confident that the new concept for the session will be a great and safe way of bringing together engaged Europeans in an innovative way.

Specifically, the current plan is to focus on an online session which will be the main event, with some students potentially participating physically at their schools in case it is possible from a public health perspective by then. For now, it’s all eyes on a modern, state-of-the-art digital event created by a motivated Officials Team. We hope you’re as excited as we are about the Digital National Session Vienna 2021!

We are excited to announce that we are currently calling for Organisers for our Digital Session Styria (15 to 18 April 2021 for Officials) and our Digital National Session Vienna (27 to 31 May 2021 for Officials)!

Call for Online Socialisings

The ESC Team, with Tobias in charge of Socialising matters, is hereby opening a call for Online Socialisings that should take place any day from this week to roughly the middle of March.

Organising a Socialising is very simple, especially in the online format, which is why we want to encourage our members to try it themselves. You simply need an idea for an activity, a date and a time, and you’re basically good to go! For further guidance, the ESC Team has also created a Socialising Guide that you can use as a point of reference.

Unlike other calls in EYP, there will be no selection, instead we will approach everyone who reaches out to us immediately! You can submit your Socialising ideas until this Sunday, 14 February using this form.

For further information, you can contact Tobias (tobias.gradenegger@eyp.at), who is responsible for Socialisings.

We can’t wait for your Socialising ideas!

Extended Call for Digital Session Chairpersons

The call for Chairpersons for our Digital Sessions Pinkafeld (8 to 11 April 2021 for Officials) and Styria (15 to 18 April 2021 for Officials) has been extended!

Find the official call document and application document here. You can apply until Sunday, 14 February 2021, 23:59 CET.

We’re looking forward to your high-quality applications!

Call for EYP Austria Senior Buddies

Conny, the ESC Team Member responsible for the Buddy System, writes:

It is a pleasure to once again open the Call for Senior Buddies!

As some of you may know, over the last few years EYP Austria developed a Buddy System that connects new members with more experienced ones to create a support system within our organisation. New members (Junior Buddies) can ask questions concerning Sessions, the EYP in general etc., while experienced members (Senior Buddies) can share their knowledge with the “next generation” of the EYP. 

We would like to gather a pool of potential Senior Buddies, from which we can select Buddy Pairs as the year goes on. If you choose to participate in the Buddy System (which I hope you do) you might only get your Junior Buddy after the National Session, which won’t take place until May of this year.

I hope many of you take part in this project, as especially in these times, where in-person sessions are no longer possible, we would love to give new members of EYP Austria the support they need and deserve.
Make sure to register here until 28 February 2021!

For further information, you can contact Conny (cornelie.becker@eyp.at), who’s in charge of the programme.
