European Youth Parliament
The European Youth Parliament (EYP) is a unique educational programme which brings together young people from all over Europe to discuss current topics in a parliamentary setting.
It encourages independent thinking and socio-political initiative. Each EYP session consists of: Teambuilding, Committee Work and General Assembly (GA). In the beginning everybody starts as a delegate, and with each session one has a chance to rise and to become a part of official EYP Teams.
Anna and I had the opportunity to participate in a few sessions by now. We would describe this experience as mind-opening, new and entertaining. Anna even made her way up and became a member of a Team on Event and School Coordination (ESC).
EYP is definitely a thing a young person should do, not just to improve the language skills, but also to meet a lot of other cultures and people.
It is a place where your skills and talents get recognised and appreciated.
So: What are you waiting for? Get involved!
