The European Youth Parliament provides young people with a forum to develop and express their opinions, as well as get equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to positively impact the world around them. We work to promote intercultural understanding, constructive dialogue, and creative problem-solving. As such, our activities have a measurable impact on young people across Europe.
Since 1987, the European Youth Parliament has inspired and empowered hundreds of thousands of young people to be open-minded, tolerant and active citizens. In a voluntary organisation, long-term thinking must often make way for tackling short-term challenges. Over the past decade, we have intensified our efforts to critically examine our organisation and steer it in a more conscious way. Creating the strategy has been to learn from past experiences, enhance our understanding of the network, and identify the potential for future change. Our systemic approach came all the way from a low scale Development Strategy 2013- 2015 to a more elaborate International Strategy 2016-2020, keeping international and national efforts as rather distinct concepts. This EYP Strategy 2021-2025 we now want to be a symbol of joining forces to continue great work and develop further! Access a full version of our strategy here.
