What is EYP?

The European Youth Parliament is a peer-to peer education programme that brings together young people from across Europe to debate the pressing issues of our time. Our mission is to inspire and empower young Europeans to be open-minded, tolerant and active citizens. Since its founding in 1987, hundreds of thousands of young people have taken part in national, regional and international EYP sessions, built friendships across borders and learnt useful skills. 

The EYP is a non-partisan and independent programme; its methods are based on non-formal education and peer-to-peer learning. Thereby the programme facilitates the learning of crucial social and professional skills and encourages independent thinking and socio-political initiative. The European Youth Parliament provides a forum for young people to develop and express their opinions on European political and social issues in an open and welcoming environment; supports intercultural understanding and peacebuilding by bringing young Europeans with different backgrounds closer together to share ideas, opinions and practices; creates a network of the next generation of diverse, young changemakers, equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to positively shape the world around them.
