The European Youth Parliament’s mission is to inspire and empower young Europeans to become open-minded, tolerant and active citizens.

The European Youth Parliament is a unique educational platform that empowers empowers young people from across Europe to be open-minded, active citizens. It provide participants with a forum to develop and express their opinions on a  wide range of topics. By bringing young people from different backgrounds closer together, it also promotes intercultural dialogue and exchange. Through our activities, our EYP participants and volunteers are equipped with the knowledge and skills to positively shape the world around them. 

The EYP network has an open, safe and welcoming environment – run by young people, for young people. Offering a range of non-formal and peer-led educational activities, the EYP provides young people with the space to grow, learn various skills, as well as take responsibility for themselves and for others. Every year, more than 3500 young volunteers implement EYP activities across Europe, acting as moderators, organisers and facilitators during events. Moreover, it is young people who jointly steer out organisation at large and shape the future of the programme.
