The European Youth Parliament network (EYP) brings young people aged 14 to 28 together across Europe. But who exactly are the people running the network, what are its main activities, and how did it all actually start?

As part of our 30th birthday celebrations we are looking for new merchandise designs! Next to our other campaigns we opened a call for ideas and designs for our future merchandise. We are convinced that our vast and diverse network is in the best position to come up with amazing designs, which will be much more than just a one-time wearable. A public vote will decide which designs will be produced.

For many, the 30-year milestone means reaching a mature age, and that is also true for the European Youth Parliament network. As lively as ever, the network engages more than 35,000 young people in 40 European countries on a yearly basis, making its events and forums a hub for meeting young, passionate people and forming friendships across borders - as well as acquiring skills related to cultural awareness, self-assessment, and shaping actively society around them.

The network of the European Youth Parliament selected its four steering groups, which will support the network by building new capacities, developing the EYP’s content related work and carrying out agendas set by the Governing Body.
