What is EYP?

The European Youth Parliament’s aim is to to encourage the youth’s interest in current political affairs and democratic processes. Through parliamentary simulations we make politics an active and real experience. Participants are encouraged to practice independent thinking and to take personal initiative for their own and the European future.


The three phases of the simulation


All our events consist of three distinct phases: Teambuilding, Committee Work and the General Assembly.
During the first part of the session, the participants get to know each other through a series of group dynamic exercises and problem-solving tasks, which help them to form a team, set up their own rules and lay the foundation for a successful committee work.
Well prepared to take the next step, the committees are facing the challenge of writing a resolution.
The young Europeans have to find different, new and innovative solutions, trying to best employ their cultural backgrounds and experiences made. One’s own experiences and visions
are equally important as expert analyses and will become visible in their motion for a resolution.
The highlight of every event is the General Assembly, which reunites all participants, to consider the results of committee work. During the open debates, each committee presents and defends their motion for a resolution.

Information for teachers & parents

For Schools


The European Youth Parliament is possibly the most outstanding non-formal educational project your students can experience. The academic, political, social and emotional implications are guaranteed to enhance their education and personal maturation to a very gratifying extent. They benefit, your school benefits, their family, their peers, their teachers…

If you are interested in joining an EYP Session with your school, get in contact with the EYP National Committee in your country for more information. You will find a group of motivated EYP volunteers willing to help introduce you and your students to the wide array of possibilities that EYP offers on local, national and international levels.


Your role as a teacher


Teachers play a vital role in supporting their students before, during and after EYP Sessions. During a national selection process in your country, your students will participate in a nation-wide competition to participate in the International Sessions of the EYP. Besides organisational matters, this can include topic organisation and preparation as well as coaching on public speaking, voice projection and personal presence.

EYP Sessions both on the national and international level also include a tailored programme for teachers. This usually includes thematic workshops, networking between teachers and a sightseeing programme.
