The 89th International Session of the European Youth Parliament(EYP) took place in Yerevan, Armenia in March 2019. For 10 days, almost 300 participants from 36 countries across Europe engaged in intercultural encounters and explored ways to be active citizens together. It was notably the biggest international youth event in the history of Armenia. Below are some of the session's highlights.
						

2018 was the third year of the BASES project run by the European Youth Parliament in cooperation with the German Federal Foreign Office. Numerous parliamentary events and training initiatives have been successfully organised by the EYP National Committees in countries of the Eastern Partnership. Let’s take a closer look at their major accomplishments. 

Perhaps the 22nd February should be celebrated as the "European Day of Active Citizenship" from now on, since on Friday 22nd  of March 2019 eleven (yes, 11!) different EYP sessions were taking place across Europe simultaneously, involving in their activities more than 1000 young Europeans altogether. From Portugal to Poland and from Norway to Albania, in one single day, hundreds of young people participated in the European Youth Parliament for the first time.

The first ever EYP Media Innovation Lab took place in Berlin in December 2018. The event gathered 16 experienced EYPers from 11 countries who discussed several EYP and media related topics, such as the newly launched EYP Communication Strategy, the mission of EYP media teams, improvements on the internal and external communication, as well as consistency in the media outputs.
