Welcome to Young Europe!

The European Youth Parliament is one of Europe’s largest youth platforms for civic education, intercultural encounters, and the exchange of ideas – run by young people, for young people. Our mission is to inspire and empower a young generation of informed, open-minded, responsible, and active citizens that shape society and drive impact.

EYP History Book

The EYP History Book, titled “A Tale of Young Europe – The story of the European Youth Parliament (the years 1987 to 2022)” has been concluded!

After a two-year process, carried forward by a group of tireless, dedicated volunteers, who pored over archives sourced from all across the continent, we finally have an embodiment of the EYP’s long and proud history. And you can get it yourself!
