EYP Session types
The main activities of the European Youth Parliament are “sessions”. These events bring together over 30,000 young people per year to discuss, build mutual understanding and gain expertise. A welcoming environment and experience-based methodology offer participants a safe space to develop and express their opinions, build intercultural understanding and develop democratic citizenship skills. EYP sessions vary in length from 2 hours to 10 days. Debates cover a wide range of topics – often related to international politics or human rights, but also including fields such as climate change, health and energy.
The EYP does not reflect specific country positions or promote existing policy proposals. In all debates, it is participants’ opinions that matter. Guided by peer moderators, young people take part in a series of activities.
Regional Selection Conference
Typically 3 day events, that include Teambuilding, Committee work and General Assembly. Mostly they represent a great platform for new experiences in the organisation.
National selection conference
National Selection Conferences in EYP Georgia typically last for 4 days which include one day for Teambuilding, two days for Committee Work and finally the General Assembly. As the name suggest, Representatives of EYP Georgia - the Georgian Delegations are selected through these events.
Large scale events that can last from 5 to 10 days. They are unique for the multi-cultural diversity of participants - both officials and the delegates.
EYP organises three international nine-day sessions each year. Most National Committees are represented by their National Delegations selected though selection conferences or an application selection process. Unlike most of the other types of sessions, the ISs are supervised by the International Office, located in Berlin, Germany.
Kobuleti Outreach Session taking place during 4th to 6th of October and Akhaltsikhe Outreach Session taking place during 11th to the 13th of October will be small-scale events of EYP Georgia.
