Join the 30th anniversary celebrations of the European Youth Parliament

30 years

  of the European Youth Parliament
of civic education by young people for young people
of intercultural dialogue

 

Since its founding in 1987 in Fontainebleau, France, the EYP has connected thousands of lives and hearts of young Europeans. Currently there are more than 3,000 young people who  are engaged as volunteers in our programme and actively inspire and empower young Europeans to become open-minded, tolerant and active citizens.
Such a milestone deserves special attention! Together with our vast and diverse network of 40 European countries, we will celebrate our anniversary over the course of the whole year 2017.
We want to celebrate this occasion together with you on our social media channels and face-to-face in Brno, Czech Republic. Are you curious about what we as an organisation have accomplished over the last couple of years? Or will you even join us in our celebration?


Social media campaigns #EYPthrowback and #EYPimpact

We have started two EYP 30-related campaigns for this year: #EYPthrowback and #EYPimpact.

#EYPthrowback revolves around treasured EYP-memories and stories from the past. Tell us about your most memorable stories or narrate important event in EYP-history you witnessed!

#EYPimpact is all about the people, who joined the EYP, reflecting on what impact has had EYP on them, as well as their opinions, minds and ideas on EYP. We want to explore why our programme is so important, how it changed young minds and why it makes a difference.

How to get involved:
It’s easy! Get creative yourself by using the hashtags in social media – or for a chance to be featured on our social media channels by us – hand in your ideas here.


Merchandise

Collage Winners Mechandise

 

Do you want to show the whole world that you are a proud EYPer? Do it subtly yet resolutely with our new merchandise. We held an open call for talented designers and artists in our network and beyond it to show us their ideas. A public vote decided on which designs will be produced. The winner(s) of the design competition will be rewarded with a travel reimbursement to the Brno anniversary event, up to 150 euro for one person or 200 euro for a team. Check out some of the winning designs in the picture above and get your copy during the EYP 30 celebrations in Brno!


Call for a EuroConcert Host

The EYP is celebrating its 30 years of existence. Such a milestone deserves special attention, and the International Office is working together with EYP Czech Republic and the team of the 85th International Session in Brno to put together a weekend filled with reminiscing about EYP, meeting old friends and new, and coming together to celebrate. The start of the celebratory weekend will be a EuroConcert hosted in the beautiful Brno Filharmonie with performances from the Brno IS participants and other EYP 30 guests.

For this special occasion we are now looking for 1-2 persons to host the EuroConcert.

Have you already been a host at a EuroConcert? Did you have other moderation or hosting experiences that make you a perfect fit for this task or do you know someone or a pair who would be perfect to do this? Then apply or nominate someone by midnight the 29th of June, 2017.
