Since 1987, the European Youth Parliament supports the development of young people into politically aware and responsible citizens by involving them in European political thinking and promoting intercultural understanding.
The European Youth Parliament (EYP) is a unique educational programme which brings together young people from all over Europe to discuss current topics in a parliamentary setting. As a network of independent associations, EYP is present in 40 European countries and organises more than 500 events every year. The EYP network organises almost 1.200 days of EYP activity every year, involving 30.000 participants. Thousands of young people are active as volunteers all over Europe, making EYP a programme truly for young people, by young people.
The European Youth Parliament’s mission is to inspire and empower young Europeans to become open-minded, tolerant and active citizens.
