Head-Organiser Training (HOT) 2022

On the 12 and 13 November 2022 the annual Head-Organiser Training took place online. Like every year this training is conducted by the Board Members of EYP Austria and strives to provide the Head-Organisers of our upcoming multi-day events with all the tools they need to succeed in their work. 

Organising multi-day events takes several months of preparation work and requires the fulfillment of hundreds of large and small tasks by a large group of people, all coordinated by the Head-Organisers and their NC Board Mentors. Throughout the event the Head-Organisers took part in trainings ranging from topics such as Fundraising, Leadership and Delegate Acquisition to Sustainability and EYP Austrias Corporate Identity. 

Thanks to the online format of the event all Head-Organisers were able to come together and for the first time in a long time Core-Organisers were also included. They attended modules together with their respective Head-Organisers and will now be able to support their Organising Teams even better in the upcoming months. Thank you to everyone who worked on and participated in the HOT 2022!

Corporate Identity of EYP Austria

The Coporate Identity (CI) is a strategy encompassing guidelines on branding and communication features that helps create a unified image for the organisation. These guidelines govern how the identity is applied and usually include approved organisation logos, color palettes, typefaces, page layouts, fonts, as well as other features. The CI is applied to all official and most unofficial documents we create and publish as EYP Austria as well as the EYP Network in general.

IT & Data Coordinator 2022/23 Introduction

Hello everyone! My name is Nico, and I have the honour of being your IT & Data Coordinator for the following year. A bit of information about myself before I tell you what I do: I am 17 years old and live and study Computer Science in Vienna. This passion goes back to my childhood because I never understood the necessity of doing simple tasks yourself if a computer could easily do them for you. 

In my time as the IT & Data Coordinator, I will not only be assisting EYP Austria with any issues relating to IT and its maintenance but also upgrading (or, when necessary, creating) any automated process for simplicity and efficiency. I am thrilled to be in this position, and I encourage anyone who wishes to work with me to improve IT systems for EYP Austria to reach out to me. We can better EYP Austria in our own way, whether by creating our own projects or applying necessary changes.
For processes to run smoothly, open communication also plays a massive part in IT. Therefore please feel free to contact me if you are experiencing any problems or have questions via nico.janis@eyp.at!

Delegates Abroad

Last Sunday the 97th International Session came to an end. EYP Austria was represented by seven delegate, you can read some of their insights in the following paragraphs:  

Being a delegate at the International Session of Kortrijk was very special to me. The exchange with people from so many different countries was something I have not experienced before. I feel very proud about the fact that our resolution will be able to reach actual delegates of the European Parliament and our ideas might have an impact on the world.

-Marco Spellas

My personal highlight of the session was meeting so many people of various countries. During team building, we tried to guess what certain words or phrases in each other’s language mean, that was very fun. During committee work I saw our cultural differences very clearly and everyone’s situation at home is unlike someone else’s. It is so interesting to think about because in the end, all of us gathered in Kortrijk.

PBM #3 Report

During each board term, the Board of EYP Austria meets several times to discuss important matters in person, with the Advisory Board also typically attending to some degree for guidance. Last weekend the Board held its third Physical Board Meeting (PBM) in Vienna.

As with all PBMs, a report has been compiled to inform our Members of the subjects talked about there, as well as the results of modules that will have a concrete impact on the organisation. Most notably, the Board members updated EYP Austrias National Strategy 2021-25, reviewed the Annual Plan, got better acquainted with the Corporate Strategy and prepared for the upcoming Head-Organiser Training.
