The 81st International Session of the European Youth Parliament started today, 6th of March 2016, with a full day of Teambuilding at Queen's University Belfast. Our first flagship international session of 2016 is a joint project of EYP United Kingdom and EYP Ireland, bringing together almost 300 young people from 33 countries in two cities and countries. The event is supported by the Schwarzkopf Foundation as the EYP's international umbrella organisation.

A new year is here and with it also new winds in European Youth Parliament. As of January 1st, the three new members of the governing body Beata, Lars-Erik and Jenny start their mandates. The Governing Body is responsible for ensuring the educational value of EYP, taking care of HR and establishing a long-term strategy for the network. You can read more about their work here.
