Aims and tasks

“The opportunity to develop a range of skills is the most impressive aspect of EYP: from diplomacy and consensus building, to rhetoric and leadership, to writing and editorial experience, to fundraising and project management.”

The European Youth parliament pursues two main goals:
We want to create an added value for society as a whole and individuals. We aim at engaging young people in active discussion about current social and political issues as well as giving them a deeper understanding of politics at a European level. We hereby help them develop their personality further. We would like to contribute to the mutual understanding of different cultures and win our youth for the European idea.

The EYP thus seeks to promote a European dimension to education and to give students the opportunity to participate in a practical, positive learning experience. As the citizens of the future, the EYP experience encourages young people to be aware of current affairs and democratic processes conveying not only enthusiasm for active participation, but also a sense for social responsibility.
By challenging young people, we want to give them an opportunity to discover and realize their full potential as well as develop their personality further. We hope that the delegates at our diverse events can benefit from the joint work as much as the members of our association. The EYP constitutes a forum in which students can improve their social competences and communication skills.
Our regular feedback round with our participants shows that we are successfully achieving our aims.
