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.

The winner(s) of the design which is going to be produced 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.
